Default Lennox Lewis' Second Biggest Victory?

So it should be fairly unanimous that it is Lewis' W over Holyfield as his single most significant win.

What about his second biggest win? He beat everyone he ever fought.

Was it the Brutal stoppage win over future Hall of Famer Vitali Klitschko?
The 1 round bludgeoning of contender Andrew Golota?
Knocking Ruddock out in 2 rounds?

Discuss!

Guess an argument could be made that he beat Holyfield 2x.

The guy did have a pretty insane resume.

I mean, for the event that was in it, his KOing of Rahman in the re-match when some people thought he was getting past it,was pretty impressive

Knocking out Golota, who destroyed his rival Bowe twice, in a round.

Yeah Lennox really brought his A game that night. Beautiful boxing by a man of his size.

His second best win is Vitali. Retrospectively. At that time, it was not his second best win.

It is a great win in retrospect, but until the day when the Klittards have long disappeared (if they ever do), I doubt he'll ever get full respect for it.

Although Vitali was ahead on the cards, it is equally impressive that out-of-shape, shot-to-shit Lewis did what he had to do to get it done against a young, hungry, primed lion in Vitali, who was ready to redeem himself after one of the most disgraceful quit jobs in the history of boxing against blown-up SMW Chris Byrd.
