Default 1996 Tyson vs Lewis

Suppose Tyson decides to take this fight over Holyfield fight. Who wins and how does it affect Holyfield's career down the road?

I still take Lewis. It would be more competitive than their 2002 bout though. Lennox would finish Tyson around the tenth,I think.

Obviously if Holyfield had never fought Tyson,it would affect his legacy.

In 96 I still Lewis prevailing, perhaps ina slightly more difficult fight. prime for prime I like Tyson, but not at this stage.

If Lewis beats Tyson in 1996; does Holyfield fight Lewis in 1997? Can 97 Holyfield beat Lewis?

I like Tyson. I dont think Lennox had the balls to try to bomb Tyson out
early like he did Golota ruddock etc. I see Lewis winning then getting tagged
by a hook or uppercut in the fourth or fifth.

Lewis still has the edge but Tyson would defiantly pose more problems for him. Lewis would be more wary and reluctant to pull the trigger. 1996 Tyson was still a very dangerous fighter.

I see Lewis taking a decision, maybe a late stoppage. I think Tyson has a very good chance at getting Lewis out of there in 6 rounds possibly.
