Re: Lennox Lewis on Facing Mike Tyson & Vitali Klitschko
Yeah, heavyweight champions of the world tend to be a little arrogant. Go figure, winning the toughest prize in sports, all that hard work, making all those trained killers hit the canvas as you claw your way to the top...God forbid, you start to think of yourself as pretty capable.
Lewis vs. Tyson, best for best, would have been a great fight. Too huge hitters with the tools to win. I'd have loved to see that fight. Heavyweight gold.
Lewis showed he was man enough to fight a younger, stronger opponent and rough him up and get him out of the fight when he fought Vitali. Tyson showed he could handle length and strength in several fights. They both had everything they needed to beat the tar out of eachother, and I think it would have been a great great fight.
I think I'd probably tip my hat to Lewis, but I don't know that I'd bet on him. Those two guys were animals with power and fire. Anything can happen.
