    Lewis' chin is better - Fury would have been dropped by the bombs Vitali landed on Lennox - but Fury's powers of recovery are much better. He would have recovered and fought on (and won) had he tasted the canvas from McCall and Rahman. As an overall package, Fury is better in this department: the combination of his chin and powers of recovery are better than Lewis'...

    McCall and Rahman would be far and away the 2nd and 3rd best guys on Fury's resume and there is no guarantee he beats either.

    Both have less than stellar chins. That being said, Fury does seem to have better recuperative powers than Lennox after being dropped.

    Fury’s chin has repeatedly let him down but his powers of recovery are second to none. He’s been down more than a whores drawers

    yeah, boring answer but Lewis seemed better at staying on his feet, Fury better (than almost anyone) at getting up after a knockdown.

    At heavyweight he was. Rahman was also prime when Lewis faced him, Cunningham was 37 and well past prime when he almost ko'd Fury.

    Cunningham was fast and agile. Fury Would simply box circles around Rahman. Even if Rahman packs more of a punch how Would it matter if he cant use it?

    Lewis’s record shows that if he gets knocked down the fight is over,Fury on the other hand when he gets knocked down he gets up fine with vengeance on his mind .

    I thought Fury was using the Adam Booth special edition recovery spells when he got up against Wilder. Yeah, it's impossible for me to give Lennox this round. Tyson Fury wins.

    Lennox has a better chin. Fury seems to have better recovery.

    Recovered vs McCall ? I like Lewis but he stumbled 3 times when he got up, including stumbling into the referee. I'd hardly say recovered he didn't have his full faculties.

    Briggs is a big puncher though, no shame in getting rocked by Briggs.
