That may be true BUT,other HW's beat at least good fighters in their primes. Lewis didnt fight good fighters in their primes almost ever.

I think you are overrating the guys holmes and tyson fought. Make a poll comparing tua to either ruddock or tony tucker and tua will win in a landslide.

I realize he beat Vitali. But he did lose just about every round yeah.

No not really, he clearly won like 2 or 3 of those rounds and at the end of the day, the doctors stepped in to protect vitali based on damage he recieved from lennox's fists. Lewis was awarded the decision, he beat vitali with his own fists.

Holyfield was considered an underdog in 1996 when he came to fight Tyson. Holyfield had been in many wars and was older.
Yet they favored him to beat a prime young champion like Lewis?
Prime Holyfield would put Lewis to sleep.
Yes, Holyfield was the favourite in the Lewis bout.

The fight was actually even after the 6th round when the fight with Vitali was stopped.

If Holyfield was the favorite,it goes to show how little faith anyone had in Lewis.

Vitali was certianly leading ON ALL SCORECARDS when the fight ended.

So what, who got his hand raised, yeah thats what i thought. The doctors stepped in to save vitali's eyesight, lennox would have permanently ****ed his face up if the fight continued, lol who are you kidding.

Vitali was running out of gas and in much worse condition.
