Default Re: The Legacy of Lennox Lewis with Emanuel Steward

Yeah and dont forget the Mercer fight where he basically had to tell him to stop crying like a bitch and get out there and fight. Steward's ego is as big as lewis' was.
Funny to hear him say that about Futch too. Futch is on record saying that was a horrible mistake Bowe made throwing his belt away and blamed Newman for orchestrating that. He felt the Lewis fight would have been Bowe's defining moment.
Stewards a great trainer but he talks a lot of shit and just listening to his on air commentary where he flip flops from one side to the next is proof of it.

Lennox learned how to fight like a real champ but never as good as prime Tyson, Bowe or Holyfield and these guys wouldnt have allowed Lewis to fight at a slow outside pace. I think he would have had his hands full with all three of those guys, and his fight with Ray Mercer was proof of that.
