Of course, look at pacman for example...
the truth about Wlad fight is boring are the truth, Hbo giving him nomerous chance to capture american hearts but he failed, he maybe win but his win is not spectacular. if he fight like Tyson and concuer the division like rightnow i'm sure he will bigger than pacman. but that thing would never happen....
wlad just has to satisfied by his accomplishment alone, nothing wrong with that...

For the nth time, Manny Pacquiao is the living, breathing example of this.

It's not a great comparison: Pac is promoted by a top American promoter and exclusively fights in the US, in primetime. The Pinoy ethnic following is also significant, much less potential for a Ukr. If Wlad was a PR, or Vitali Mex, they'd be bigger than Pac

It depends if he got the ridiculous amount of media hype that Tyson received

"baddest man on the planet"

Best win a light heavyweight and a fat way past prime former great.

Media hype and a poor division are the only reasons Tyson is regarded so highly. Nationality also played a part let's not kid ourselves.

LOL. I'm not comparing Pac to Wlad or Vitali. And most certainly not to Tyson. There's a big difference between comparing and making an example. The TS was asking if a "hypothetical Ukrainian Tyson" can be popular in the US. I was merely stating that it is possible.

The Klitshko's aren't popular in the US? Hang on, how many other boxers are appearing on Conan O Brian, the Tonight Show and other US talk shows? How many other boxers can get more than 2 million viewers on HBO fighting someone like Arreolla? How many other boxers have their fights shows in Times Square? How many other boxers top the US google trends charts when they're fighting? It's not that the brothers don't have a place in the US it's that HBO is too pig ignorant and likely rascist.

And again, I am merely stating that your example is not necessarily applicable, based on many differences:

1. This is Pac's home base, for all purposes
2. The ethnic angle, which is a powerful factor in US boxing promotion
3. Pac's standing with the massive Mexican audience, earned via wins over best Mexican comp. Who's this Ukranian Tyson supposed to fight, the same Euros nobody gives a ***** about? Or does this guy also come with imaginary comp with built in following?

And the brits are not fans of the klits either ... they trash them all the time y and support Lewis over them

Nationality is not a big deal ... the truth is that the heavyweight title has lost its prestige and kids would rather be superbowl champs or have NBA rings than get punched in the head
Football players also take a lot of head trauma, probably more so than boxers. Boxers don't fight every week, for one thing. Repeated trauma is a serious thing. Boxers take a lot of shots, but they have down time to recover at least. A football season must be pretty brutal on a lot of guys. Of course, some lower level boxers fight often, but most high level pros only fight a few times per year tops.
