Lewis fought on the world stage and his fights were broadcast on PPV on the biggest networks both sides of the atlantic. K2 turned a gereration off the HW division and got dumped from the major networks in the US and the UK.

Being boring =/= bad fighters

Hw division has always been one of the worst divisions.
Only appeal in it are the higher KO% and seeing the strongest men fight.


If we got the p4p equal of Chavez Sr, Salvador Sanchez, Hagler, Duran, Leonard in the hw division people would finally see just how weak it is compared to the lower divisions.

Now the hw division gets an all time low attention it's only better for the lower divisions because they finally get the attention they deserve.

Wlad is very good but he will always perhaps be ranked down as his list of challengers is very weak , not his fault really as the talent pool during his reign has been very poor . What he needs to happen is that he beats a couple of the up and coming contenders say fury and price convincingly and then one of them goes on to become a successful champion themselves then his reputation amongst boxing historians will grow , but I doubt he will be ranked above lewis

You think Americans are going to pay to watch two Europeans fight each other? They turn off because off there is no US hope. You think they'd watch Floyd if he was a Brit? If so you are thick as mince. And LL sold out one stadium in his career and the opponent sold all the tickets. Hardly box office. He made the PPV verses US opponents only.

I have Lewis as number 3. Vitali is miles off the pace he's not worthy of discussion.

If wlad can defeat men who go on to achieve great things it may be arguable but I'd be surprised if Wlad ever got close to number 3.

Lewis was the last man standing in h2h perhaps the toughest hw division ever.

Neither can catch Lewis.

Vitali has a stoppage loss to Lewis and a frankly awful resume.

Wlad has a slightly better record, but has embarrassing knock out losses and and two he didn't avenge and let his brother take care of.

Lewis has a much better record and beat everyone he ever faced
