If you knew all of Lewis' fights and only this Mercer fight, you would have an awfully hard time getting your head around things like the Ferguson incident. It's amazing to me that this one even went the distance, with what they were landing. The funny thing to me is, having seen so much of both of them, best for best, I'd never choose Mercer over Lennox in a fantasy fight...even though I already think he beat him. I also think Lennox was sort of suckered into this type of fight. He could've won it clearly, without taking most of those shots, if he decided to go with a defensive game plan and stuck to it. He was more than capable of outboxing Mercer comfortably, but Lennox was funny that way, sometimes. I think of Chad Dawson in '08 and '09 with Glen Johnson. If Dawson were smarter, the first fight would've been as easy as the second, though I hate to say it. If Lennox fought Mercer again, I think it'd have been similar to that.

I think LL clearly won the fight I remember I had him up at least 2 points. Your description of mercer is spot on and is exactly what is missing to beat the Bros and the bums in the current era.

Guys, guys, guys, the klitlicker is obviously right, Mercer won the 10 round fight 6-6. I really do not know why you guys would argue with his vast amount of klitlogic! Smarten up you guys . . . won't you ever learn?

There are no good wins on Lennox's resume. He's the best con artist in boxing history. How otherwise intelligent people can rate him as one of the best 20 heavyweights is beyond my comprehension.
There's an easy way around this. Name 20 HWs with a better resume and who was more dominate than Lennox was

It was a close win for Lewis - probably 6 rounds to 4.

Actually, this fight shat all over the opinion that Lewis had no heart and wouldn't be able to tough it out. I would struggle to score this for Mercer, he was very good in patches and won his rounds, but, over the distance, Lewis did the better work and deserved to win.
