They're brothers, so it's to be expected.
Wladimir is great, no doubt; but I think Vitali of 2003/4 stops him. There's no escaping the fact that Wladimir has a glass chin. It's just that he's developed a good defence.
Relentless pressure from someone his own height and with good boxing attributes/skills would see it tested again, for sure.
