When Tua and Lennox squared off I was very disappointed. Tua took almost no risks in what was his best shot at being champ, and Lennox...
Lennox was content to jab a timid 5'10" slow footed Tua for 36 minutes. It's no wonder Lewis received so much criticism for this fight from the boxing world. Jab-jab-retreat was not what fans were expecting when the fight was signed. Is it possible Lewis was aware of Tua's chin and didn't even want to TRY to lay down some power shots?
If you're introducing someone to boxing be sure to NOT show them this fight.
it was a boxing lesson showed by lewis. if you look for fights non showable to people then wlad-ibragimov takes the price. wlads cowardly show that night cost him the american audience, disgracefull showing from a hw champion.
