Usually, whenever a fighter makes another fighter have a nervous break down and begin crying, that's his best performance. But probably not in this case.

The Golota win was a great victory. Not even HBO who Lewis was contracted to thought he could win this fight. They didn't pick him up from the airport, they didn't even book him a room to stay in for the fight. After he demolished Golota I'm sure a lot of people at HBO shat themselves.

Golota.. That right hand was devastating. Golota gave everyone a tough fight and Lennox lands that right in the first and easily defeats Andrew.

Considering the magnitude of the event, the oponent, the questions hanging over his legitimacy and the fact that many were picking against him, I cant go past Holyfield I.

Lennox was still seen by many as unproven and a bit of a pretender, Holy was a proven ATG and was supposed to answer a lot of questions about Lewis' heart and ability. It was a genuine unification bout and on foreign soil.

Best overall win: against Klitschko
Best performance, disciplined execution of gameplan: against Tua

How anyone can list Golota or Rahman II is beyond me. In those fights Lewis encountered little opposition, was never in danger, wasn't tested whatsoever. Yes the KOs looked great but that wasn't the question.

I agree about Rahman II, that was a fight he should have been dominating but Golota was an impressive win, remember Golota hadnt really been beaten until then only the two losses by disqualification to Bowe in fights he'd been winning impressively. I think Golota was definitely one of his best wins.
