Default Re: If Vitali or Wlad beats Pulev/Povetkin/Fury, will he rank above Lennox Lewis?

Lewis used fight on PPV and broke record numbers. K2 dont even get on Eurosport. Nobody watches them. Its a fact. How does that get them ranked above Lewis.

3 time world champion because his ass got knocked out cold twice. The first defeat 'aveneged' cos the guy was having crack withdrawal. And Wlad was a world champ at age 24, not 26 like Lewis.

But seriously speaking now, Wladimir already has a more impressive and longer reign then Lewis.

The reason why Lewis still is widely regarded as a greater HW, is because of his wins over Fields and Tyson who were by that point significantly lesser fighters then in their prime.

Wladimir doesnt have those big names in his resume, and for some reason he also rubs ppl. the wrong way which reflects on the anti-klitschko sentiment that persists on this forums.
The Holyfield that Lewis beat (twice really ) is still better than anyone wlad or vitali has beaten . The other thing that goes in Lewis favour is that he avenged his defeats.

K2 last fights were streamed free over the internet and fought in a half empy stadium. No boxing fan in their right mind would pay a penny to witness a K2 borefest.

You call McCall's mental breakdown an avenged defeat? It was surely a no contest. Pulev and Povetkin are potentialy as good as that Holyfield who'd been KO'd, unlike them, we'll see how Wlad does.

How many football stadiums has Lewis ever filled you fudd? Once verses Bruno in 92 and Bruno sold the tickets.

Of course they are potentially, they are young men and unbeaten with planty KO's. I recall Holyfield almost being KO'd by Bert Cooper, the guy was good but no superman.

The second defeat avenged by way of cold-blooded KO.

I don't think Wlad had the stomach to rematch the prowess of Ross Purity or Corrie Sanders. Got to Brewster coming off a loss, shortly before Brewster retired, though. No comparison really. Lewis, without doubt is superior to both Klits and dusted the harder of the two brothers before he hung 'em up.

Why Clit-Fanny-Boys insist on trying to compare scheit with sugar, is beyond me.

Lewis fought 22 Times in the US, For a fighter who was lauded as a non-american styled boxer he sure was active in the US. You Klit fans act as if the Klitschko Brothers are the only ridiculed non US Heavyweight Champions. Lewis only got accepted by the UK at the end of his career. It was only until he defeated Holyfield & Tyson that in the eyes of the public esteem he was deemed as the man of his era.
