If Rahman fought as well as he talked, he'd probably still be champ.

On a side note, Max Kellerman is an irritating twit.

It kind of shows the greatness of Lewis.

All Ramhan managed to do was make him more dangerous.

I see the same quality as we see in the Louis of the Schmeling rematch.

I guess hindsight has told us that Rahman was nothing special..... but at the time it did seem like an incredible victory for Lennox.

Past his best, against a prime opponent who knocked him spark out a few months earlier.

It was probably this fight that cemented him as an ATG - he could quite easily have retired and got his HoF slot, with his position as British P4P #1 secure already.

Funny video, Rahman antics in the press conferences really sold the fight. "Lennox said I woke the lion up in Lennox Lewis well if that right hand in South Africa did'nt wake him up, I don't know what will."

Well now that Vitali is on such a roll currently I think in hindsight Lennox win over him while being past his prime and overweight has really cemented his legacy.

If only Lennox was that motivated for all his fights.
