Yeah, it has to be said, Lewis fought like a *****.
At one point he had Holyfield on the ropes, but then he just retreated, probably Holyfield made a scary face or something.

I remember Lewis opposing the cup that Holyfield wore in the Tyson fight. Said it was unfair and tried to get the comission not to allow him to wear it in their fight. When that didnt work, he went out and got one that was ridiculous. Yes Grant did the same thing.

It was awful behaviour from big Lenny ("The Lion").

Honestly, I thought Lewis could have done more in that fight.

Yeah, as far as long-term reputation, popularity and legacy goes, I think Lewis was fortunate to be of the end that draw decision.
Obviously, not at the time. But soon after.
It's remembered now as an unfair draw that should have been a win, rather than a lacklustre and uninspiring win.
