Re: What did pre-Steward Lewis do better than post-Steward Lewis?
Stewart certainly influenced Lewis to protect that so so chin.................and when you think lightning only strkes once it did strike again against borderline journeyman. If Lewis would never had Stewart it stands to reason that he would have more KO losses on his record because in a real firefight it was was always his achilles heel.
Fantasy ? I think not, check out WK before and after Stewart, agressive and actively looking for the KO, now safety first and settle for a onesided decision instead of taking chances. Not a bad strategy, a win is a win no matter how you slice and dice it.
Both WK and Lewis have similar qualities, good jab, size , height, strengh, ok but not great stamina and are good in imposing their will on opponents........but then we also have the chin factor to consider, while not glass but certainly not on a Tyson, Holyfield, Ali Foreman and so on level
