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.
This era's heavyweight division sucks though so him dominating it isn't anything special.

His bro tried taking on an old undertrained Lewis and still failed so there you have it.
