Watch the Weaver and Tyson fights. In the Weaver fight, Larry had a cold, took a beating, but made it a point to rally back, badly hurt Weaver with a great uppercut that dropped him, then land a great combo that put Weaver onto queer street to finish it. In the Tyson fight, Larry took a beating, but wasn't shy about hitting Tyson, or getting up to fight on. Lennox was about a level above Holmes in power, thats not "way more" Larry had some pretty good 1 punch KO's, like against Curt Sheppard or his rematch with Weaver. Larry's jab was faster, stronger, and way more effective than Lewis's, although Lewis had a great jab too.
