    Whyte has a better defense, his guard is tighter and he throws more counters than Mason did, Gary never beat anyone as good as Chisora.

    Mason was just more skillful, had better defence (some success against Lewis) and was overall better.

    Mason was better, the question should be rather if Joshua would win against him. He was at the level of Bruno and 37 - 0.

    IMO Whyte would've given Lewis from the Mason fight trouble

    But not very long likely, maybe 3 - 5 rounds I assume (it could be also like against Ruddock or Grant).

    Mason`s defense wasn`t that good, Lewis battered him and wsn`t even that good at that point, Lewis was still very green when he fought Mason, Biggs was beating Mason before he got caught.

    Ruddock was very open and Lewis ws being trained by Steward whern he fought Grant, he had improved vastly since the Mason fight, he was still just learning the ropes.

    AJ is far more skilled that Mason was.

    Whyte gets paid a lot more than Mason did.
    But apart from that Mason is superior in every department.

    Mason wasn`t quicker. Whyte is taller than Mason was.

    I think Mason was arguable leading or it was almost even.

    Whyte is more open/ has poorer defence than Ruddock, but less power and skill. Against Grant was Lewis 35.
