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.
wow, i guess you have nothing for LL.

personally for me LL is the greatest h2h HW ever.
now all these are 2 outta 3 cause anyone could lose BUT no way does LL lose 2 x to ANY HW ever

I think Holyfield struggled more than Lewis with Mercer, to me he was down until the knockdown.
I believe Lewis struggled more.
I scored it 5-4-1 for Lennox, and 7-3 (+1 KD) for Evander.

It was a hell of a good fight and to be completely honest either fighter could have won that fight. Lewis landed more total punches, Mercer more jabs, so it was a close, close fight. (and yes, I just finished watching it again). Lewis won a split decision so that's about as close as it gets.

But why do posters criticize a particular fighter? Lewis spend most of the fight trying to KO Mercer and Mercer had a chin of granite and fought a great fight, that's why it was a close fight.

Anyway, I gave Lewis rounds 2,3,4,5,7,8 and I gave Mercer rounds 1,6,9,10.

Round 5 was close enough that it could have gone either way.

Mercer was robbed. They did not want to ruin Lewis's career.
