In the fight Ruddock's hands were at his ribs too, as if he was looking to knock Lennox out with the smash. Both men looked like they were trying to time each other with a big shot. Lennox was smarter, he kept his hands up higher and got to him first, especially with the jab.
I don't think Razor's head was clear in this fight as well. He was going through significant personal BS with his management, brother, and his wife. Might have also been a bit overconfident considering he had beaten Lennox in the amateurs.
Are you ****ing crazy? He loses to at least 20 heavyweights that night, probably more. Literally that version of Lewis could be beaten by someone with a great chin and a fairly big punch. It wasn't till after the McCall loss that Lennox became a H2H great, mixing his great power with his boxing skills and sharp defence.
