Bowe took it to Holyfield and beat the crap out of him in his prime. Lewis came into the fight with a kidney belt pulled up to his nipples and ran for 12 rounds. I think you know my answer.

Overall,I rate Lennox as much better than Bowe,but in this case, Bowe's performance was better. He beat a prime Holyfield,while Lennox faced the shopworn version.

What? He didn't run, he used his reach and outboxed him.

Anyway, Bowe.

Lewis was at his supposed peak, Holyfield was old and not a big puncher and Lewis avoided him like the plague. I agree he fought scared and took the safest route to victory.

He also came in with a ridiculously high kidney belt to avoid body punches. It was kind of funny really considering Lewis was so much bigger than Holy.

Oh, absolutely. And I'm not quite sure when he started hiking up his trunks but I'm surprised the referees always let him get away with it. Michael Grant did the same thing.
