Not his best victory, but good mention.

Many people forget this victory in which he looked very good, leading up to the Lewis fight. Yes, Golota had been stopped by Lewis in one round and quit against Grant after 10 rounds, he beat up Bowe twice, the same Bowe that had a stoppage win over Holyfield. But if only Lennox Lewis beat him in the same way Tyson did, then Tyson must still have had something special, handspeed and power. This alone gave him a good chance at an old Lewis and is one of the reasons that the odds were basically 50/50.
