Yes and even if the fight was allowed to go on Lewis would have been put down and out straight away.

Lewis was not steady. I thought it was a fair decision to stop it.

Yes it was fair. Mainly because he kept moving forward into the ref, showing his legs weren't under him. Had he managed to stand still briefly and it was stopped it wouldn't have been just though.

He was clearly leaning on the ref to stayup so seems fair to me.

I think Lennox has the most disgraceful chin of all the HW champions.

1- Your mom have a disgraceful vagina.



2-

Lennox Lewis was only caught by one punches from people he under estimated.

A bad chin does not survive.


Andrew Golota- Razer Ruddock- David Tua- Gary Mason (100% KO ratio 35-0)
One punch Ko Tyson (Who had the time still had 1 punch power beyond belief) Michael Grant, Vitali Klithscko.


Lewis fought more punchers than the vast majority of the heavyweight division.

Lennox Lewis
The sheer amount of big punchers Lennox fought during his career is
mind bloggingly impressive.



Prime Razer Ruddock- Inventor of the smash, a punch that can kill. Ducked by everyone in his division other then Tyson. Took Tyson to the deep end.

Prime Tommy Morrison- Mr KO Artist.

Prime Andrew Golota

Prime Shannon Briggs

FoughtGary Mason as a 15 fight novice. Basically a kid version of Lewis fought this huge puncher who had a 100%+ KO Ratio.

Frank Bruno

Close to Prime David Tua

Prime Michael Grant

PRIME Dr IRON FIST himself. Mr SUPER KO Artist. Vitali the KO Artist KOitschko.

Prime Rahman (knocked him out 2nd fight)


and last of all Past Prime Mike Tyson.

But get this. Yes, Mike was shot, and yes Mike was slow after R1. BUT power is what guys?

Power is what? POWER IS THE LAST THING TO GO. Always. Tyson still had his amazing one punch KO Power. So he still counted as a massive puncher.

Take into account, Mccall was crazy.

He would have just let Lewis recover. Mccall had no finishing instincts, none. He was a delusional crazed drug addict. He would have done the shuffle and let Lennox recover on route to a wide Lewis UD.

Shit stoppage. Lewis would have came back and won that fight. He was robbed, HBO said it too.
