No. But all it would have taken to win was for Mercer to hold for 30 seconds less and punch for 30 more seconds. I think it was that close

Yes. Mercer also beat Holyfield. The judges were blind and in the pocket. They knew Holyfield and Lewis both drew bigger paydays than a Mercer so they robbed him.

Post your scorecard. You say the judges were "in the pocket". In who's pocket? Lennox was no draw. Are you alleging that Lewis paid the judges?
I could see if you said Mercer won close or something like that, but this was no screw job. I call it a close win for Lewis, which it officially was.

Lewis was forced into a brawl because of two things.
1. A tiny ring
2. A highly motivated Ray Mercer with a massive opportunity infront of him.

Lewis used his legs enough in the last two rounds to sneak it.
Mercer was a beast when he wanted to be.

Also this fight proves just how much more multi-dimensional Lewis was than either Klit. He could go to war when he had to, and still come out on top.

I was AT that fight. There were three of us, and we had seats in about the 8th row. EVERY ONE of us thought Mercer had won the fight.

It's funny how a somewhat questionable bit of judging can influence boxer's career to such a large extent. If Mercer had been given the fight, that most people I spoke with at the Garden thought he'd won, how different would things have been for both Lewis and Mercer. Oh well, it's water under the bridge now.

It's easy to say that now that these were the official scores. Duh! You are shameless!

Mercer.

Lewis was the fighter that was visibly hurt more than Mercer, just like Lewis was the only fighter to be hurt in the second Holyfield fight.

It's a fight and the man that gets hurt the most is the loser.

This "I had it this many rounds for ..." argument is for fags.

This. In every fight Lennox has ever performed unimpressively his opponents have supposedly been in the shape of their lives and Lennox himself at his worst.

Lewis 6-4, could see it as a draw as well.
