A very faded, over the hill Tyson.

He was a pugilist specialist !

Rarely do you see his kind of technique and polish in a guy that size.

He got careless on two occasions. I don't put too much stock on that as he avenged both losses decisively.

(Joe Louis lost to Schmelling, folks didn't dwell on it).

He's 3 or 4 alltime on my list.

He was very tactical, which led him to perhaps be a bit overly cuatious on occassion. But all in all, a brilliant package of size, power and skill. By quite some distance the best HW in the 90's IMO.

I bet you were looking at your poster of Joe Frazier in a pink suit, 1972, while you typed that.

I think Lewis's chin is underrated. His power and strength were incredible.

In every other regard he's overrated.
