Early 90's Tyson beats both, but the post-prision version may lose to Vitali.

Old George with his power, chin and his jab can beat Wladimir. However, he'd lose to Vitali, unless he cut him.

Evander wins against both with his speed, combos, heart and durability.

Lewis beats both of them, but would have some problems with Wlad's jab.

I think Prime Bowe may beat them too.

We know Peter was limited and Thompson was good but was 37 the first time Wlad fought him, even older than Rahman was and he was never a dangerous puncher.
And by cruiserweights fighting the Wlad I mean Chris Byrd, Jean Marc Mormeck and Eddie Chambers. Sure Byrd and Chambers scored their best wins at heavy, but they were the lightest punchers in the division.
I don't blame the Klitschkos for fighting cruiserweights, old fighters and green up-and-comers. The division is so thin and limited and the champs have to fight somebody.

Haye is an overachiever 4sure but as an heavyweight he really was not a great puncher. Lewis, Bowe and even Holyfield carried much more power and I rate their skills far beyond all of of the guys the Klitschko's have faced.

Those weren't used because they were the best names. They were examples of being as far away from cruiserweights as possible.

I don't think they would hold titles. Even if both brothers were there and the punchers were sent to Vitali to fight. There were a better crop of heavyweights. Can't messure how good they would do by how they did against the bunch they got to fight in this era.

I believe they would have rose above everyone except Lennox Lewis.
