    Well if Lennox got stretched by second-tiers early, not once, but twice, both times by one punch, imagine what Wilder does to him










    Just kidding.
    Lennox by (T)KO

    Lewis doesn't mess around here and comes out fast and vicious. Wilder goes for it to but Lennox comes out winning.
    Lewis ko 3 Wilder.

    Wilder is a weird boxer, Lewis is better and there is no doubt but Wilder always finds time and space for that one punch, but still my opinion is Lewis would win...

    Hmm?,,,I can't imagine Lewis coming out fast and attacking the arguably hardest puncher who ever lived. I'd say it could be 2 or 3 rounds before he fired a bomb. He would try and set it up, not walk into one like he did with McCall

    Wilder is one hell of a fighter and horribly underappreciated on this forum, that said Lennox was one of the most cerebral heavyweights of all time, I could actually see wilder having a good chance before Lennox perfected his jab under emanuel stewart, but taking from the best I've seen of both I got to go with Lennox by mid to late round stoppage, Lennox's superior ring i.q. would be the most telling difference in the bout.

    Really don’t see the love affair with Wilder. Fury whooped him good and if he had more power would have knocked him out. Great punch but it’s hard to land when you don’t throw any punches. Lewis within 3.

    I don't no, He came out faster or seemed to do, when he had a genuine challenge in front that could be dangerous. Or at least seeking the ko faster. Maybe not the wisest of things to do but a guy that can punch like Lewis, maybe would be best tactics against Wilder.

    I think Wilder finds a way to win that one.

    I think you are covering up your opinion by disguising it in a joke.

    Me neither. He was made to look terrible by a Fury who’s training camp was still shedding weight and rust. I don’t think Wilder is a good fighter. I see Wilder losing against a number of guys Lewis fought including the ghost of Mike Tyson.

    Yet, Wilder has held the title for five years and remains undefeated.

    Lewis, I'd put my mortgage on it.

    Does Wilder beat McCall and Rahman?

    I like Wilder as well.
