He was at prime for Douglas , a fighter who was not intimdated by him, just as Lennox would not have been.

Prime Lennox versus Prime Tyson.

Lennox by UD or late stoppage.
Tyson's prime ended after the Spinks fight, basically. That's when he left his old management team. Just look at the Bruno fight for evidence. And I'm not taking anything away from Douglas, btw. Even a prime Mike with Rooney/Cus probably wouldn't of had an easy time in that fight.

And Prime Mike beats Lewis 9/10, IMO. Lennox would not be able to handle him. Too much speed, too much aggression, power and skill. Lewis could barely handle the old, over-the-hills Mike in the first round of their fight. Mike just gassed out, and got beat on for eight rounds. Prime Mike > Lewis, I'd bet my whole bank account on it.
