Very good job at selectively highlighting only PART of my post... Now let's bring the rest of it to the table.

In either case, Lewis was still even bigger than Bugner and would likely be larger than any man Ali ever fought. If not, he was certainly more well rounded as a big man in terms of size, power, conditioning, mobility, skill, etc..
There we go.. Helps to have a broader view of the big picture.


And in either case, this is definitely trying to change the argument.

I'm pretty sure if Lewis were to live and box in the same era as Ernie, he wouldn't weigh 245lbs
