What and who is Wladimir?
What and who is Wladimir? Wladimir is
1) Olympic SHW Champion,
2) IFB/trueWBA/WBO/IBO and the Ring Magazine Champion,
4) a boxer who KOed 47 of his 56 opponents,
5) a most dominant HW boxer of his era, along with his brother Vitaliy,
6) and, most of all, a person of incredible will, who achieved much of the above after devastating losses to Brewster and Sanders, after most people -- but his true fans -- had written him off.
Remember, Wladimir is the guy who kept getting up after repeated KDs in the Sanders fight. I remember that George Foreman, in his commentary for HBO, saw heart and determination in this. I am happy to say that George Foreman has been proven to be right about Wladimir... by Wladimir.
