Prime or not prime, the fight always goes the same. Tyson was lacking the necessary ring intelligence to deal with a guy like Lewis. Tyson would get hugged for two rounds and then picked off with big shots from the outside.

Prime just like shot Tyson has absolutely nothing to offer to nullify Lewis' hug & tire strategy.

Tyson was in posistion to be the GOAT but his lust for fame fortune and taking advantage of women is his downfall. The dude is totally off his rocker, I mean the guy is literally nuts as you all know. Pre Don King Tyson easily beats Lewis without a doubt, post Don, no ****ing way.

Good point , but a prime Tyson was a bit more primal and would create openings which would win him the fight. I think uppercuts right down the pipe of the chin of Lewis does the trick.

I'm not even sure how effective Tyson's uppercut would be against Lewis considering how high above his shoulder it would have to go to land. Based on what I saw when they fought I'm pretty sure Lewis would have a more effective uppercut than Lewis. It was hooks that Tyson was landing, and he even hurt Lewis in the later stages of the fight, and Lewis was developing a mouse under his left eye. But I don't see Tyson winning the battle of the uppercuts.

Best for best I'd probably edge towards Lewis. Anything could happen.

Tyson KO 3

That lazy **** jab barely kept the corpse of Tyson away ... prime Tyson explodes with counters and sends the crowd home with pieces of Lewis' glass jaw

Lennox hid in England during Tyson's ferocious wiping-out of the entire division. When Tyson went to prison, all of a sudden Lennox Lewis decided to go to America.

Lennox is a fraud who fought names who were either fatter than ever before (Tyson, Tua), old and shot (Holyfield, Tyson, Mercer) or drug users (Tucker, McCall).

Lennox actually lost the fight with a shot Ray Mercer, and lost the rematch with a shot Holyfield. Not to mention getting knocked out by McCall and Rahman.

His management knew when to pick an opponent. Pick the cherries when they're ripe!

Lennox was an ATG - arguably the greatest H2H heavy of all time

Tyson was an overhyped bully who American teenagers used to love masturbating over


Prime Lewis savages him

You seem to forget that Lennox was still an amateur during Mike's best years of 1986-88. Tyson's team also gave Lewis step aside money in 1996.

Tyson give him problems early, but Lewis finishes the job eventually and wins by KO.

That to me is the most likely outcome.
