Re: Greater Resume: Lewis or Holmes?
I would have to say that their resumes are on par with each other's. I don't want to be a fence sitter, but that is really how I feel.
I don't think that Holmes missed out on any more fights than Lewis did. Holmes missed Thomas, Page, Coetzee, and Dokes.
Lewis missed Bowe, W. Klitschko, Byrd, Moorer, and Foreman.
I don't fault them entirely for their missed opposition. Foreman speaks like he wanted no part of Lewis. Moorer may have never been thought of by Lewis. Bowe just ducked Lewis.
Promoters, money, timing may have effected Holmes ability to fight the four I named for him.
I really don't think an edge can be given to either fighter in terms of their competition. Some of Lewis' look better on film, but that was only because they had better cameras in his era.
