Tony Thomson is not a biggest puncher around but in their first fight he hit him many times clear and Wlad was able to absorb all of that.
He was holding in 12th round against Haye but he survived the punch and actually he was better and able to hit clear Haye by the end of that round.
Wach is not very good fighter (that's clear) but he is massive and he surly can punch. Combine that with PED it can't be weak. Especially he landed unexpectedly and quite clean. Wlad reacted very well.
Wach has a 50% KO ratio, despite fighting bums his entire career....other than Wlad obviously. He did hurt Wlad though.
Wlad is very good super heavyweight, there simply hasn't been many good fighters around at HW to test him. The better fighters that he has fought, or even the lesser one's with good power, have hurt Wlad and/or dropped him.
Ultimately, he fights in a defensive manner and he's very good at it, so he doesn;t get hit on the chin very much.
