I disagree on both counts. Lennox, it's absurd to feel that a fighter with a shaky chin, whom can be bullied about and outworked at times can beat a prime Tyson.
Holmes, a case can be made, but Holmes was not shot by any means and I feel a prime Holmes would have lasted a few rounds later, or would have lost a good UD.
