Cmon dude, Lewis wouldnt have made the change if he thought he had the skills to compete on the elite level.
What are you talking about ? - He was more than competing on the elite level without Steward ! He was easily defeating the likes of Ruddock and Tucker, and had Riddick Bowe binning the belt rather than fight him. He was ranked in the top 2 or 3, and in hindsight many of his fans will tell you, reasonably I suppose, point blank he was the number 1 guy over Bowe at that time.
And Gary Mason was as good as many of the contenders Lewis beat after he got with steward.
