Default Riddick Bowe vs Lennox Lewis olympics

[ame]http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=K39AbwNl3QU[/ame]

Lennox Lewis started really slow in the first round, but looked like he was about to "Golota" Bowe in the second round, what an explosion of power.

Bad stoppage. Bowe got robbed imo, however that is amateur
Boxing. Bowe got caught with one or two good shots, and bout
Was stopped. I felt Bowe won the first, Lewis did come out very
agressive second round, just do not agree with the stoppage
Neither did commentators albeit American.

Bowe got hit too much as a heavyweight, he looked slow for a fit man

If Bowe wasn't hurt and was really so great, he could have stopped getting his ass kicked.

Yet so many people put so much merit into this fight regarding how things would go down as a pro. I agree it was a bad stoppage and both were kids. Bowe became a better pro a lot quicker than Lewis and would have spanked him if they fought right after Bowe took the title from Holyfield.
