    Whyte is craftier than most of Lewis's opponents ?

    LMAO you're a f*cking idiot for saying that. The smartest thing he does is catch and counter. He is a wild swinging glass chin bafoon who would've gotten his ass wiped out by Mercer, Ruddock, Tua, Vitali, Holyfield, and maybe even Bruno and Morrison. Whyte is Alex Stewart/ Derek Chisora level

    Whyte had a hard night against Rivas and got blasted out by an ancient Povetkin, not even outboxed, just blasted out. LOL! Mercer by TKO

    Imagine if Ruddocks smash punch connected on Whyte like it did Dokes. Whyte would be done.

    The problem is you overrated Joshua and his resume. I remember you claiming that Joshua would KO Lewis and that Joshua had a better resume. It was ridiculous. Lewis would have wiped his ass with Joshua.

    Mercer at his best and Bruno at 245 couldn't drop Lennox . AJ gets sparked out early

    Klitschko was a very old 41 when he faced AJ and almost beat him, be fair....

    Lewis, his level of opposition was a little higher than AJ's & he fought plenty of punchers, AJ would not have beaten Wilder in my opinion.

    I wonder if Lewis could train for 6 months and beat Joshua today in his 50s.

    Intertwined with a fighters "chin" is his ability to REACT well to getting hit. Take Vladdy Klitschko for instance - his chin is actually okay - average to maybe even pretty good. The problem is his reaction to getting hit which causes him to take many more follow up shots. Joshua has an average chin, but his reaction to getting hit is terrible, far worse than even a Vlad K. If someone lands flush on Joshua everyone in the arena knows he's hurt. He's like Amir Khan skittering all over the place.

    To be fair to Lewis, the shots he got KTFO by were monster shots. His composure while taking bombs was far, far better than Joshua. Because of this, his overall "chin" must be considered better.

    Hmm? I don't think you can argue that you're not right here. Joshua doesn't get half way through that lineup.
