In boxing circles, Wladimir Klitschko's name is often synonymous with a good snooze. While he stands as the clear top dog of the heavyweight division, Klitschko the Younger has a robotic, control-and-avoid action style that scores points and wins fights, but fails to move most fight fans to cheering adulation.
Even so, it would be unfair to say Dr. Steelhammer is boring.

And before he perfected that risk-free style, some fighters had the stuff to take the fight to the big Ukrainian, also producing exciting fights. All you need to do to find some Klitschko excitement is to rewind the clock a few years, and viola! You find all the fodder you need for a Top 5 list.
