OK, nobody is suggesting that Primo Carnera is a good as Lennox Lewis, but styles make fights.

There is nothing in Louis's fights against guys of Lewis's size and style to suggest that he was particularly troubled by either their size or style. Indeed these seem to be precisely the kind of opponents he feasts on.

If these fighters were being competitive against Louis in loosing efforts, or giving him stylistic problems, then it would strengthen your case, but they weren’t. Even Mike Tyson usually had to go to the score cards against guys Lewis's size, because they at least managed to spoil to the finish line. Louis simply destroyed them.

All of this points to a stylistic advantage for Louis.
