Yep...Lacy...JC schooled a banger to perfection who had smashed everyone who had gone before him and held a more than decent strap...

Jon, just who came before him ??
And yeah I think Tyson would have beaten Lewis but not as convincingly as people believe

Buchanon and Calzaghe share in the fact that both look pretty poor on film (in ATG terms). However due to me having a better knowlege of the 90's and 00's I can at least term some of Calzaghe's victories credible.

I really don't care for either fighter, technically Buchanon h2h is probably better but Calzaghe was a punching machine who we never saw the best of at top level. Its a close call, both are over-rated.

Lewis poons both.
wow, i think the opposite

Lewis would always have had too much for Tyson. He sparred with him before the Olympics when they were both kids. Lewis was Tyson's bogeyman.

Tyson had a lot of bogeymen. Generally guys that were both world class and not petrified.

Namely Holyfield and Lewis.

Douglas was in meltdown after the death of his mother...... Mike would have needed a baseball bat to beat Holyfield and Lewis

I know they had history... But 87-89 Tyson was a machine chopping everything in his path... Again, it is something that we will never know...

He was an amazing fighter but even in his prime could only sustain his explosive workrate for a short period of time. Lewis on form, would pick him off with the jab all night long.

Let me help you

Thats hardly Shane Mosley and Roberto Duran in there is it? Respect where its due, and it is due but they are not particularly outstanding fighters. Poor use of the jab, messy infighting, tangled arms and feet.

Green is the greatest. He beat a legend to become a legend, whilst coquering australia and the world.
