Default Opponent Swap: Wlad-Peter I & Lewis-Mercer

In these enjoyable fights, the tall Superheavyweights trained by the legendary Manny Steward had their "baptisms of fire" which made them reach their Peaks. When Wlad (244lbs) fought Peter (243lbs) in '05, it was his 6th fight with Steward training him, & when Lewis (247lbs) fought Mercer (238lbs) in '96, it was his 4th fight with Steward as his trainer. Those fights happened 11 years apart, but were very similar senarios in the final development phase of Wlad & Lewis. I think these two fights are ideal to use in my 'Opponent Swap' concept. Here are the bouts:

'96 Lewis vs. '05 Wlad

'96 Mercer vs. '05 Peter

'05 Wlad vs. '96 Mercer

'96 Lewis vs. '05 Peter



My scorecard for Wlad-Peter I '05:

Ok, funnily enough out of all the similarities between Lewis and wlad here is where I think they differ-

Both men were more offensively minded at this stage of their careers but I think this favoured Lewis.

I think Wladimir as we see him now has a better defense and works better behind the jab than Lennox did.

'96 Lewis vs. '05 Wlad -Lewis

'96 Mercer vs. '05 Peter -Mercer

'05 Wlad vs. '96 Mercer -Mercer

'96 Lewis vs. '05 Peter -Lewis

I think if Peter was able to trouble Wlad so much at that point then those 2 versions of Mercer and Lewis would be just too much.

Thanks for the good response FJAY, can you copy & paste this post into my version of this topic in the classic forum, please?

i think the mercer that gave lewis fits would have stopped wlad in his tracks. yet i feel lewis would always have been too much for such a limited but aggressive fighter as peter. peter vs mercer would have been a great brawl
