A replay of your mother.

I said it before. The winner of this bout would be the one with Steward in their corner. Now if they both have Steward, it would be some sort of strange stalemate the likes of which we've never seen before. Lewis and Wlad neutralizing each other in the clinch and catching each other's jabs for 12 rounds or something odd like that while the two Stewards' plead for their man to step up in vain.

This would be a chess game with sledge hammers. Not sure who wins. I think Lewis has a confidence edge early in the match, but Wlad is very quick with his feet and has a hard gaurd to penetrate. Whomever lands their best stuff early would win. I would favor Lewis slightly, but this one is close to pick em'

Lewis isn't really like Wlad, he's a brawler who was too lazy/unfit/cautious to constantly brawl. But he did when he decided too and was so much better at brawling and fighting inside/mid range. Wlad in his defense is better outside with a better jab

Wlad can beat some great champions, Lewis isn't 1 of them

If Mendoza gives someone an edge over a Klit who's not named Jeffries you know who wins

Except Lewis actually could heed the instructions of Steward when the going got tough. This is the biggest difference between the two men, according to Steward. One that says a lot about Lewis mindset, confidence, and ability to adjust as a fighter in contrast to Wlad.

Lewis wins 9/10 times in my honest opinion.

Wlad wins the boxing match, Lewis the fight.

Thatīs just BS. Wladīs the better boxer. Better jab, better right, controls distance better, slightly better footwork, faster and has more power. Lewis can fight which is something that Wlad canīt - or at least hasnīt shown yet - and thus would win that fight but saying Lewis is better in everything than Wlad is BS.

And yes, Lewis chin is better than Wladīs but Wladīs chin is far better than you think - and so is Lewisī.

What happens if we get the Correa Lewis vs. the Sdunek Wlad?

Corea Lewis destroys Sdunek Wlad in 2 rounds, he is way more dangerous than Sanders.

I think Wlad outboxes him for the UD, especially if Lennox shows up out of shape expecting a short night's work. Let's face it- Lennox didn't particularly like fighting guys who fought defensively, which is one big reason he feasted heavily on immobile sluggers. That was no accident- besides being where the money was at, those types of fighters were ones he matched up very well against so long as he wasn't careless. Lewis doesn't have the footwork, speed, or mobility advantage on Wlad, and that's a huge difference from what he was used to facing. This is a whole different ballgame than Shannon Briggs, Mavrovic, Mercer, and Michael Grant.

And, as Mongoose said, whoever's got Steward in their corner has a distinct advantage.

It will end earlier and Wlad has a better chance of winning. Sdunek Wlad was a far more impressive offense machine and took more risks, so the chance of him hurting and finishing Lewis is higher and the chance of him getting hurt and finished off is too. Could be Hagler-Hearns for hws.

I think the pre Steward Lewis would still beat current Wlad. It would be in a much sloppier fashion and he would most certainly be tagged with lots of jabs. He would catch Wlad, then Wlad would drop.

I think Lewis was just a bit better than Wlad, face to face. Therefore, he wins 2 out of 3 fights between them.

Lewis is the greatest "superheavyweight" of all time. Wlad is #2. They dominated for about the same number of years, but Lewis has a (not so old) Holyfield in his resume and also Vitali Klitschko. He also avenged all his loses. Thatīs why heīs ahead of Wlad by a step or two.

I rank Lewis in my Top5 heavyweights of all time. Wlad is in my Top10.

Pre-Steward Wlad is going to be walking into a ton of punishment, recall the shit storm that Brewster had to endure to pressure and breakdown early Steward Wlad. And this is the guy who got sparked by McCall. Say what you will about Brewster, the man could take a hit like few could. And when you catch Steward Wlad, you get squeezed by the Octopus until he's ready to let go and reset. I think Wlad now deserves more respect than a Frank Bruno, who fell into the ropes, arms down and eyes wide with terror when he got tagged good.

God, this might be your greatest gem.

Lewis was a brawler who was so lazy he ended up being a boxer?
