Size advantage? That's bullshit!

It's because he fought who ever he needs to fight.

Valuev has size advantage over the rest of his competition rightnow . . . but where does he stand in the ratings? Does that say somehting about being bigger?

That's a fantasy question dude . . . and what can you say to disprove me when I say yes?

If Lewis started from middle weight he could have been faster and more agile fighter.

I'm not trying to disprove anything.....read my earlier posts on here....I agree with your posts on the subject

Just wondering if you thought his attributes could be utilized at lower weights

What are we talking about though?

Top 5 alltime? Or Top 5 British?

Cause Lennox aint anywhere close to top 5 p4p alltime.

Im not exactly sure where either go I just know Lennox ranks above Joe.

Also Lennox did not hold a massive size advantage in a lot of his fights...in fact in many it was only slight, sometimes he was the smaller man. No way did he have a "massive" size advantage over Golota, Grant, Bruno, Tucker, Briggs, Ruddock, Klitschko or Akinwande..Several of those guys were taller then him, several outweighed him.

I'd say by a big, big margin when comparing records but it's close when comparing actual talent.

Yes why not.

You know what's on my head . . . a Lewis with the same fighting heart, with the same training habbits, with the same game approach and attitude and like I said he could be a lot faster.

Just my imgination.
