Lewis wouldn't destroy him super early like Tyson did, but there is no way Lewis allows Spinks to get to the final bell if he is winning on points.

Spinks wouldn't like last more than 3-4 rounds. Lewis might not finish him as fast as Tyson did, but he'd still finish him rather quickly. There's really nothing Spinks has to hurt Lewis or to even outbox him. And the Lewis that fought Vitali was extremely aggressive once he was warmed up.

Lewis takes Spinks lightly and loses a few rounds and then he realizes he needs to slug it out at about the 4th or 5th round... show this guy what a super HW is like... and that's when he gets the KO

Thanks, guys. You've unwittingly taken an interesting part in a long, drawn out discussion I'm in regarding Holmes and Lewis comparisons.

this is a very poor lewis. i dont think its fair. i dont know... its not far off the ali who struggled with evangalista. ,
lewis was awful against fast guys he took easy. remeber mavovick? no doubt lewis has the beter legacy but lennox was prety wishy washy against klit. i recon the spinks who fought a master class against a tired holmes is just as good against a tired lewis and pips it over 15 rounds with very litle to spare just the same. remember lewis was breathing like a rapist after what 2 rounds?
lewis who fought ruddock, golata and grant wipes the jinx out quicker than you can say ray robinson however.

Well that "very poor" version of Lewis beat one of the greatest HW of the past 20 years. So its fair and Lewis wins by T/KO regardless.

Agreed. Spinks could not take the kind of shots that Lewis was nailing Vitali with, and in actuality, Vitali's face didn't hold up to them very well either.. Klitschko was also able to place a great deal more pressure on Lewis due to his size, strength and reach, something that Spinks wouldn't be able to do.... I admire Michael Spinks for his efforts at heavyweight, but at the end of the day, he simply can't be favored in very many fantasy matches at these levels...
