If someone would give him a shot, I think he'd beat some of the other good fighters on Wladimir's resume, like Chagaev.
Thompson is awkward, big and strong, but a faster, clever southpaw boxer like Chagaev would very likely beat him (he beat Valuev and Virchis, who was ranked in the top 10 at the time).
Thompson was outboxed and defeated by a smaller, quicker southpaw in Eric Kirkland.
