You telling me Lewis is gonna handle a Tyson of the Berbick fight?

Fighters are the worst judges of the guys they've fought. Chris Byrd was recently on the podcast Mohr Stories and he claims that he would beat Wladimir Klitschko 98 out of 100 times. It's just an unfortunate accident that the two times in a hundred he'd lose came the first two times they fought.

Tyson was a boxer , fighter mover as well, and better in those 3 areas.

He says tyson needed to look for his opponent and hunt them down, he knows well if somebody come's forward on mike they are going to get knocked the **** out. That interview is riddled with subliminal bitterness and awareness that a prime mike would of been too much for him.

Lewis should be proud of himself that he stands next to danny williams and kevin macbride in taking out a shadow of tyson.

At least he didn't write "it's" for the third person possessive. That really gets my goat.

Lewis was far from prime when he beat tyson, plus he was older. It was only 12 months before he fought Vitali and i think we can all agree he was finished by then. IMO there wasnt much between Lewis in the 2 fights and it was only that Tyson had no longer the skill to expose it.

Lewis wins at least 7 times outta 10 IMO

Lewis was the king of his era though.

Lewis comes off ****y like that interview he had with the Polish newspaper which was a good interview nonetheless. I disagree on him beating a prime Tyson but hell Lennox is still one of my favourites.

Lewis was older but Tyson was much more shot than Lewis was.

Most agree Lewis peak period was around Tua-Golota-Holyfield fights, Tysons peak according to most was the Spinks fight, thats 14 years before he fought Lewis.

Lewis is greater than Tyson but only by a small margin

Lewis was too arrogant and too ****ing cautious in regards to his career choice. He always thought Klitschkos would amount to nothing and when Sanders ko Wlad.. he was smug and said 'see I told ya he was not the heir apparant' what Lewis should have done was give Wlad a fight in 2001/2003. kill the young and give Vitali a rematch(Which I'm 90% sure he can win again) 3-0 against Kbros.. legit case as the GOAT. I don't think Lewis realized how bad the Pre Steward Version of Wlad was.. a dozen 90's heavys could have koncked out the Wlad from 2000-2003.

Yep, i agree with your post. I was just pointing out that people always say tyson was finished (which is true) without factoring in that Lewis was past prime too and not a kick in the arse from finished himself.

Not sure what your getting at regarding saying he was cautious in his career choices. LL fought all of them at some stage, obviously not Wlad but surely your not suggesting that was a duck
