Re: Lennox Lewis vs Mike Tyson, prime for prime, who wins?
I can't remember my opinion previously but i've recently undertake a mass reevaluation of every boxer I list as "great"
I've studied every great from 1980 onwards barring sanchez and zaragoza (hopefully tonight or tomorrow).
Obviously tyson and lewis fall into this category and my appreciation of tyson has dramatically increased recently and I can't envision a whole lot of hw's beating him in his peak (ali, louis, foreman and liston might be the only ones) his style in the 86-88 period was amazingly effective with a great combination of defence and attack being utilised.
Lewis was also great and perhaps in some ways he might just be one of the most complete hws in history. However he's been shown vulnerable to one punch knockouts and I can quite easily picture mike forcing his way inside and knocking him out.
