Say what you want about Wlad's style...but while we're on the topic, Wlad's faced guys who are more mobile, counterpunchers, the whole 9 yards. Lennox hasn't.

Lennox was great against a certain type of fighter, and we don't know how he'd do against the other styles because he never fought them. His resume is much more 1 dimensional than Wlad's even though he's got the bigger names.

When did you ever see Lennox walk down an athletic counterpuncher or someone with slick defense? I'd like to know, honestly, because if I'm missing that fight out of Lennox's career I'll track it down and re-evaluate my stance.

Lennox Haye = Lennox/Tommy Morrison

He is such a bitter old ****. He always talks about how great he was and how the first Holyfield fight was the worst robbery ever.
When is Lennox coming back? I think he's got the itch again. Haye vs Lewis would be bigger than Haye-Chisora by 100 times.
Haye-Lewis,winner fights Vitali for the belt.

True, but I would take both those fighters against Lewis to beat Haye.

Lewis is bragging. He would have beat Haye, yes, but David being a great runner wouldn't have succumbed easily.

Maybe the Lion means Haye wouldn't last two rounds at the bar? Can't hold his drink?

Lewis had power and could move very well. His jab was really great and Lewis was intelligent. I think he would have knocked out Haye. I do not think Haye could have taken Lewis' shots.

On a slightly different note, Interesting when people talk about Haye. I remember Witherspoon was with Haye & Khan and being interviewed by Jonny Nelson and Witherspoon said he wanted Chisora to win. Haye was a bit surprised but then most former world champions have shown a dislike of Haye.

He's right.

Lewis would smell fear and go after Haye.
