The reason Lewis is behind the likes of Holyfield, Holmes, and Foreman is precisely because he beat every man he ever faced since most of the guys he beat sucked and could have been defeated by many other fighters.
Grant? Sure not his fault and all but the guy had a glass jaw and went nowhere.
Lewis called Tyson out as early in '96 but as we well know (not the fault of Lewis' camp) the fight was never sanctioned. Instead Mikey squared up with Holyfield (the supposedly easier option). We all know what happened in that one, eh. You can say whatever you wish about Lewis but he sure didn't avoid fighters. He ranks behind Holmes but ahead of the other two guys you've mentioned for sure.
Arrange the words "belt", "Rid**** Bowe" and "trashcan" together to make a sentence and this suggests Lewis wasn't the chicken at all ...
