Botha in his prime was a solid fighter,as was Frank Bruno. Id rate them ahead of nearly all the contenders in the current division.
Lewis has at least 3 HOF fighters on his resume.
It was just TKO 6, how about his win over Holyfield(arguably 2)?
Destroying quality fighters like Golota and Ruddock?
i'm talking about wlad . vitali picking shannon's corpse for a title fight has nothing to do with wlad . wlad and vitali are two different people
2 of those HOF were washed up . and i already conceded that lewis was head and shoulders above vitali in that fight , his best win , and the only fight that puts him above wlad .
golota and ruddock are quality fighters now ? are they better than chagaev , haye , byrd .. ?
