The famous cutman Jacob “Stitch” Durand, who at one time worked with the Klitschko brothers, compared Vitaly and Vladimir.
“I don’t know if Vitaly was more gifted than Vladimir, but he probably had larger eggs. Vitaly was more aggressive, more like a pit bull. I agree with that. As for skills, he hit” boom-boom “- Russian jump, jab and hook. But I liked Vitaly because he hit the body. He did it in a really special way. Vitaly was a beast.
Vladimir worked with Emanuel Steward for many years. He has become a more technical fighter. That was the difference between them, but Vitaly was a beast. He told me: “Stitch, if you were with me when I fought Lennox Lewis, I would win.” – said Jacob Duran in an interview with the RT Sport MMA YouTube channel.
We will remind, Duran also admitted that he expected an easy victory for Vladimir Klitschko in the fight with Fury.
