Re: What If...90s HWs - Who comes out on top - Tyson, Holyfield, Bowe, or Lewis?
I have Lewis ranked first. It's hard to argue with him taking that spot, when he beat 2 of them and the other avoided him.
I'd rank Bowe second, if this is 'Big Daddy' at his absolute best every time. I think a lot of people ignore his skills, because he was so inconsistent. If he was mentally and physically prepared, he beats a lot ATG heavyweights. We rarely saw him at his peak and sadly, people put that down to other circumstances and rate Bowe more on his poor performances. The guy was a hell of a fighter, but just didn't have the heart of a champion. If he was more committed, I think he could have been ranked in the top 5 of all-time. A Lewis fight would be close and I see him beating Holyfield and Tyson fairly easily.
Then Holyfield and obviously Tyson last.
