Good point.

If Lewis pulls the stuff he did against Michael Grant, pushing down on the back of his neck, leaning on his back and throwing the uppercuts underneath kinda like George Foreman, he could have Tyson out early. It all depends on how early Tyson tries to get to Lewis' body and his head movement. I'd bet on Tyson dropping Lewis with a body shot if Lewis did any of the leaning and hitting underneath. Tyson would be in range for his uppercut to the body or chest.
