The Klitschko brothers are, without doubt, the most dominant force in heavyweight boxing.

Between them, the twin towers of Europe hold all of heavyweight boxing’s major titles and a few more on the side. They have defended their titles on numerous occasions, each time winning in emphatic style.

Despite their success in the ring, outside of the ring they have come under a barrage of criticism.

Some fans highlight weaknesses in their defence, others claim that they are boring fighters to watch. The biggest criticism that the dynamic duo face is the fact that between them they have only faced one boxer who could be regarded as great, and that was back in 2003.

Since Vitali’s defeat against Lennox Lewis, the brothers have made a career out of dominating a very weak Heavyweight division. Although it is not their fault that their opponents are lacking in quality, it will limit their legacies.

This slideshow will assess a series of different criteria that boxers are judged when their careers are over in order to assess how great the Klitschko brothers truly are.

Will they make the top 10?
