You can with a young Tyson in the terms of when Lewis sparred with him in 1984 he was shocked that Tyson wasnt engaging in the type of take it easy sparring he had been used to, he was trying to knock him out, it was totally different and Lewis said he learnt alot from that. He said that it was a wake up call to him about the reality of getting in the ring. Tyson was more developed and only 2 years from becoming champ while lewis was technically raw and physically not as developed either.
