Lewis was very wary of getting knocked out and knew the impact on his legacy would be monstrous.
true. tyson was much further past his prime than evander, who seemed to be good throughout the 90's and would of never of beat lewis because he didnt have a punch. im a big fan of both tyson and lewis, and im agreement that round 1-5 would be time for tyson to ko lewis after that i think lewis would dominate. yeh lewis might be a bit to cautious for tyson to get close. it obviously underestimated rahman, and mccall was because he was green.
destructive tyson vs calm mature lewis. its too hard to pick!!
