easy win for Lennox. Buster would be stopped in 2 or 3 rounds.

I think Lewis would win the battle of the jabs and be able to box Buster on the back foot for the majority of the fight had he approached it that way. If he starts trying to rough up Buster on the inside, he may be able to push for a late stoppage as well. I don't think Douglas could replicate the sort of one punch power that Rahman and McCall produced, but that being said, a prime Lewis would be far to focused and on point to get caught with something that wild.

I'll take Lewis by late stoppage. Lewis would be slightly up on the scorecards and Douglas gets caught by some monster straight rights and uppercuts whilst pushing for the win in the championship rounds. A valiant effort from a strongly motivated Buster after his recent mothers passing, but Lewis stylistically is a whole different animal for him, in comparison to a Mike Tyson that was probably less than 90%

The Lennox Lewis of 1997 beats Buster by a close decision. It would be a battle of jabs and big right hands. Lennox had the edge in both departments.

I think Buster for Mike was motivated that is true, but I think the style matched up well also. In round 8 he looked at his gloves and for a second almost stayed down like he did with Evander. And he quit in 1987 with Tony Tucker. I don't think he would have taken many punches from Lennox.
