Tyson became undisputed champ when he beat 35-0 Tucker in '87...his reign ended in '90 when he got starched by Douglas, so thats a champ reign of 2 yrs. 6 that time he beat Biggs, Larry Holmes, Tony Tubbs, Spinks, Bruno, and Carl Williams...

so Lewis' REAL reign was only a year longer than Tyson's, with Tyson beating the better overall quality of based on that i have Lewis and Tyson about even in terms of their reigns as champs...
Tyson beat a better overall quality of opponents lol, ha ha yeah right of course he did!
