That had a lot to do with Lewis, dont get me wrong. Lennox is absolutely massive. Combined with the skills and power he had, he could beat any Heavyweight champion in history. I'm not a "Prime Tyson" clown, but christ even the '96 version wouldve tested his chin a few times.
The fight just wasnt in good taste. Lennox could rate higher without Mike on his resume. But that was ugly.
Although he looked cut and ripped for the fight, he had no endurance and didn't have his heart into the fight. The Tyson who fought Holyfield the first time would have made a much more signifcant challenge for Lewis.
