I think Lewis would best be classified as a jack of all trades.

Some could outfight him on the outside.
Some could outfight him on the inside.
But never could they do both, that's why Lewis retired as a top 5 ATG hw.
According to who?. Show me a consenus where it says Lewis is the 5th best HW of all time?

I got him in my top 5 because he fought very strong men and won against all of them.

He showed he could box, brawl, fight on the inside.
He has an extremely underrated chin, enormous power.

Lennox Lewis won on his worst day.

Calling a win pathetic is stupid.

Only an idiot would call either fighter pathetic.

It's not pathetic in the sense that Lewis performed the best out of any Vitali opponent. Winning 2 rounds is quite the accomplishment against Vitali.

But it is pathetic that he retired and ducked the rematch.

You're aware scorecards exist in case one fighter can't stop the other?
You don't have to win with a (T)KO AND on the scorecards.

Cards didn't matter in this fight.
Didn't matter when Rahman KOd Lewis, nor in the rematch.
Didn't matter in Lewis v Bruno.
Didn't matter in either McCall/Lewis fights.

I really don't understand why Vitaly fans insist so much they DO in this one.

At the end of round 3, everybody - and I mean everybody - could see Vitaly wasn't going another 9 rounds with that cut.

So what difference do the cards make? You think Lewis was fighting to win rounds, or win the fight?

If Vitaly was fighting to win rounds, well, that was poor thinking on his and his corners behalf.

Cards don't matter when the boxer is out cold like Lewis was against McCall or Rahman. Cards matter when the fight is stopped because of injury.

Lewis must be a tough mother****er to be out cold against McCall and back on his feet at the count of 6.

Going by your logic (loss caused by being punched in the face = injury), then Lewis only lost to McCall and Rahman by injury too.

If cards matter when a fight is stopped by injury - then as the result was TKO6 - obviously this fight wasn't stopped by injury.


Cards only matter in a TKO if the loser is looking for something, anything, out of the fight. Something to deny the official result. Something to show that, hey, despite getting battered to a pulp, something, something went their way.

I thought there might be one guy on that list that I could defend in someway but the ones I have dealt with one here . . . it makes sense.
