Not only that, he looked like shit doing it. This 1993 version of Tucker had 3 years out of boxing. In fact, Tucker was so washed up that Bruce Seldon ko'd him in 7 rounds and Herbie Hide took just 2 rounds to get the job done

Mike Tyson had a prime of 5 years. 1986-1992. Lewis fights him in 2002.

Andrew Golota,a mentally disturbed fighter coming off 2 DQ's



LEWIS WARNED THIS IS FOR REAL

Author Dillon John Publication The Mirror London England

Date Sep 25 1998

LENNOX Lewis was reminded here last night of the harsh truth that he has waded to the top of the world through a pile of washed up drunks and junkies Lionel Butler was on drugs Oliver McCall was in and out of rehabilitation with drug and booze problems and Tommy Morrison went on drinking binges before the fight said Steward

Lewis was a big strong man and a good champ. But he was not great at all.

All of my claims are backed up by real articles from Newspapers and other actual sources. I didnt just decide to call Lewis a cherry picker,it's true.
