Lewis a G.
Yeah a G with 50 guys to help him as Tyson walks up alone.
And it still took Lewis 8 rounds to beat this old washed up Tyson when it took Danny Williams and Kevin Mcbride less rounds.

Mayweather is in company with a ton of other boxers including Pacquiao when it comes to cherry picking. The real fun and challenge is finding those who have never cherry picked throughout their entire career.

Except for the blood, the mayhem on this one makes the Haye-Chisora scuffle seem like child's play.

Floyd's career north of 135 is full of cherrypicks.

And NO, Hatton was not at his absolute best at 147!

Mayweather ducked Pacquiao, prime Margarito, prime Cotto, Paul williams, Hatton at 140, younger Mosley, Kostya Tzyu, Joshua Clottey, cherrypicked LW Marquez and then cheated him on the scales, sucker punched Ortiz, the list goes on

He's the very definition of cherrypicker and is boxing #1 P4P premiere coward

cant blame him

health comes first, indeed

Watch him at 130 & 135, he was something really special.

True, he lost his balls somewhere en route to a 140 title

Tyson didn't duck him, his team offered Lewis $13M to fight him (which would be the largest purse of his career) after he was released from prison and Lewis took step aside money instead. Mike then took Holyfield on because it would be a more lucrative fight and because Lewis was still relatively unknown and unpopular in the US and just got KTFO by Tysons sparring partner.

And why would Holyfield duck him when he was aging faster than him?? So he could fight him when he was declining and old and when Lewis was in his prime??? Holyfield never ducked anybody. Lewis didn't ascend to prominence until the late 90s and Holyfield fought him then ... When Holyfield was champ in the early 90s he already lost to Bowe when Lewis was supposed to get a title shot.

Let's cut the crap

Emmanuel Steward is on record as saying tyson was scared, intimidated by Lewis from the early days.

Tyson stood head to chest with Lewis and realised he couldn't beat this big guy who made him feel like a dwarf
