Default Re: Lennox lewis vs George Foreman - Physical strength

No1 is as strong as Foreman

Probably nobody in boxing will ever be as strong in our lifetimes.

If Lennox were as strong as Foreman, he similarly would not be focused on defense, footwork, and countering the way Foreman wasnt. He would much more be willing to stand in front, trade, brawl, slug. But Lewis was more of an all around athlete and used his brain in the ring more. Not the actions of a man who will put huge dents into a heavybag as soon as he starts working on it. You can see the way Lennox trains, hes not planning on slugging it out with anyone unless he has to. He likes to stay on his toes, and be at a comfortable distance using that jab. Totally uncharacteristic for a man who would be stronger than Foreman
