Default Lennox of the Vitali fight VS Spinks of the first Holmes fight

How does late-stage Lennox do with Spinks, as opposed to the later-stage Holmes? The exact same version Vitali fought. The same seemingly unmotivated, under-trained version. Does he pull it off anyway or would Spinks still find success moving up? How does this go down?

I don't think there would be a late stage to this fight.

Lewis still had enough at this stage to get the job done, Spinks would just be terribly undersized.

Lennox hit Vitali with some huge bombs and took a few, Spinks couldn't hurt him the way Vitali did and couldn't take the punches Lewis dished out.

Everybody assumed that Cooney would crush Michael effortlessly, being too big and strong. Michael didn't need to be able to hurt Holmes to make history. If Lennox failed to capitalize on Mike's slow start, he could be facing a pest of a headache. Tyson caught him cold. Once Spinks warmed up, he was trouble. Lewis should explode right out of the gate.

Regardless of Lewis's advanced age for this proposed match-up, I think placing a heavyweight debuting Spinks in there with him would be a bad move.. Vitali Klitschko had the height, reach and power to make more things happen against Lewis than Spinks would have, yet Lennox still found a way to triumph... Michael isn't going knock out Lewis, and while he might have had enough craftiness and youth to box with him for a while, he can't do it for 12 rounds.. The one thing that Lewis had at age 38 that Holmes didn't was the ability to punch and dispatch men who were troubling him.. Spinks at 199 lbs wouldn't be able to take it for long...

Cooney had fought all but 1 fight in 3 years going in against Spinks, with his last meeting coming 18 months earlier, and had fought no one of world class ability, in a long time... His life style choices outside the ring and obvious lack of focus made him easy pickings at this stage, and frankly was never even remotely on the same level of any version of Lewis... Holmes had some spunk left in him, but nothing to be able to hurt Spinks enough to stop him in his tracks... He was also complacently out of shape in the first fight, and upon getting his head out of his ass, got the better of Michael in the rematch.... I don't think that either of these fights give Spinks much of an argument here.

I would favor Lewis. Maybe 2:1, not a big favorite.
