The only two that come to mind are Bowe(he openly ducked Lewis), and possibly Wlad(Lewis was supposed to fight him but then Wlad got knocked out by Sanders)
and did you know that tyson was a year younger than lewis who is out of prime?
and wlad was a bit late into the coming it was vitali who was the one to watch while wlad was on the slower approach just so he wouldnt have to fight vitali
