I can't see Wlad lasting more than 6 rounds with Haye if they were the same size purely because Wlad's one-dimensional style would be much easier for Haye to overcome if they're the same size.

But prime Vitali would still be competitive I think, he's got more to his game than Wlad.
Early Wlad had a great jab and wasn't afraid to brawl.

Steward changed him to his 'one-dimensional' style.

One-dimensional is the most over-used and one of the most meaningless terms in boxing. Wlad is very difficult to hit, he controls distance and pace, he has a great right hand to keep them honest, he smothers (effectively yet boringly) any fighter that gets inside, and he has a full arsenal of punches.

Rios is one-dimensional. Wlad is not.
