Same goes for European and English fans too. Its human nature to appreciate your own kind over others.

Youngest heavyweight champion ever

First to unify the division by capturing all 3 major belts

First undisputed champion since Leon Spinks

Came back from 4 years in prison to win two other heavyweight belts

The GOAT heavyweight talent and had a prime where no man in humanity could ever live with him in a boxing ring but could only hope to survive.

Tyson has limited competition yet the ****schkos are fighting guys like Fans Botha after Tyson already destroyed him. Tysons wins over Razor Ruddock are superior to anything the *****kos have ever done. Reigning over the weakest er of heavyweights and losing to journeymen like Ross Puritty really puts them in the top 10, huh?

Where did I say that I rate Wladimir and Vitali as top 10 HWs?

Like I said, he was damn impressive; it's just a shame he was poorly managed.

To this day no heavyweight can dish out this kind of attack

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=58aMy4MzVsU

The uppercut in the second round would've probably sent Wlad into a comma and is probably the most powerful punch ever thrown

the combo at 1:31 is something either *****ko cannot dream of throwing

you will never see any heavyweight ever come close to that kind of hand speed, power, accuracy and combination punching ... along with the defense and chin

Tyson basically ranks top 5 in every meaningful category

Vitali was much more exciting than Wlad.

A Mexican Tyson would sell millions.

Wlad is technically pretty damn good, his footwork and body movement has improved a lot. Wlad VS Wach (Yes only Wach) on the bit he got hit and was on the ropes, he made Wach miss every shot. I liked that. Wlad from years a go would have got hit clean and cleaner. I am starting to like him more as I used to hate him and like Big Vit.

Manny is proof it doesn't matter if you fight like something out of a movie. Floyd is proof that nationality is a factor though, given that much of the wider public would have no appreciation of his style.

Really what you're trying to do in promoting a sport is give the wider public a reason, any reason, to be interested. And if a guy who always wins is representing their country then that can often to do the trick.
