Default Re: What did pre-Steward Lewis do better than post-Steward Lewis?

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
Hello!! Thats exactly right! Steward is very good at highlighting a fighters abilities and protecting their deficits. Deep down Lewis was a dog and liked to fight, but he just didnt have the chin for it and while Steward made him more of a safety first type fighter, it was the main reason he accomplished as much as he did.
