Obviously you guys that call Lennox Lewis an arrogant ***** & a jerk have never met the guy Lennox is a great guy What people mistake for arrogance is Lennox shyness
Once he ghets to know you he's an awesome guy.
Oh & BTW Lennox WAS the best in his era In fact he was the best since Ali

Ha! Lummox is an overrated fighter. He's on par with Vitali Klitschko. Good but not great.

Lennox Lewis seemed quite arrogant referring to himself in the 3rd person alot, he seemed quite uh into himself i guess

I don't know about those 3, maybe Holyfield but in my lifetime Wladimir Klitschko seems very humble. I can't comment on those old fighters like Patterson and Louis as I've never seen interviews with them.

Default Biggest headscratcher- Who is more humble? Lennox Lewis or Joe Louis? Discuss

Discuss. This has been argued for so long.

Most humble heavyweights of their time. Respectful to opponents, no trashtalking. No extra bravado.

Who is more humble?

I never thought of Lennox of being humble...not really. Joe Louis had to be humble because of the era he fought in. His handlers didn't want him to be hated like Jack Johnson, who was the antithesis of humble.

Lewis is a blow hard and thick as a brick.He has no reason to brag and is too stupid to know what humble even means.

I don't know man...comparing himself to arguably the best heavyweight ever (Ali) doesn't strike me as being humble. He was neither a particularly gracious winner or loser.
But I can only speak from what I see in the ring, of course. I've heard that away from boxing, he's a great guy.

Louis for me truly was a genuine, humble guy. Even though he was pretty much coached to be that way as said above. He was really just a simple (not simple-minded, just simple) country boy at heart who happened to fight like a mother****er.
