Holmes and Tyson beating old has beens? No that's Lewis job. The Frank Bruno,Razor Ruddock and Tony Tucker that Tyson beat were in their prime. Lewis fought them all after Tyson. And Tucker was 17 pounds heavier,addicted to crack cocaine and absent from boxing for 3 years prior to Lewis.
Very few heavyweights in the history of the sport have beaten another ATG in their prime. Go make a poll comparing lennox lewis's resume to that of mike tyson or larry holmes, i guarantee lennox will win in a landslide.
