    Lennox Lewis was really good the night he fought Gary Mason anyway.
    That's probably Lewis's best performance "pre Steward" aaprt from (or along with) the Ruddock destruction, and also clearly better than a few of his performances with Steward too !

    I don't think so, Joshua is just a boomrusher, who lost most rounds against 41 years old Klitschko and 39 years old Powetkin (who won every round). He just has more power than Mason, who has the better chin and a lot superior stamina.

    He was eating jabs all through the fight and missing wildly and towards the end became fustrated.

    AJ showed better footwork v Ruiz who has faster hands and better combos than Mason had.

    lol! Ruddock was all over the place, Whyte using a high guard and a catch and counter style, Ruddock didn`t throw enough right hands.

    If you can name this footwork, as be just run away and Ruiz was at his heaviest way and it appeared rather like an apply for weight watchers.
    Powetkin cut the ring and Klitschko caught him too, who had superior footwork.

    Then has Hide better footwork than Joshua too, as he moved faster and looked more graceful just as it had more natural rhythm.

    Whytes guard is terrible, he has a pretty poor defence and was outboxed by Chisora.

    He was out worked by Chisora while laying on the ropes tucked up in a high guard waiting to counter, most of Chisora`s shots landed on Whyte`s arms and gloves and Don`t forget Chisora landed some good shots on Usyk who is far better defensively than Mason was.

    AJ was standing in front of Povetkin and Wlad trying to knock them out, which he did.

    No most of these shots came through the gloves, as his double-guard has big holes (lacks).

    He didn't mainly, he stayed on the ropes for most of the fights and took punches, while trying to avoid them with his headmovement, what didn't work. He only went offensive in spurts, to go all-out, bumrush, but needed after these 2 - 3 rounds to recover, without throwing hits.

    What the hell are you talking about? AJ was never on the ropes v Povetkin and was only on the ropes v Wad for a bit because he was badly hurt, it was the fight of the year with both guys swinging haymakers, AJ wa known as a seek and destroy fighter before the Ruiz rematch with only Parker hearing the final bell, in fact he became too gung ho v Ruiz in their first clash after flooring him with lead to him eating that counter hook.

    Gary mason is a far superior boxer imo...its odd but 30 years ago i felt Gary waa slow...looking at him now his hands are sharp and with tremendous snap.The win over Biggs is better than any of whyte" s overhyped wins

    No Biggs was past his best, Chisora is a better win, Mason was struggling with Biggs.

    and chisora wasnt after 6 defeats and hayes street fight beating?
    It than comes down to opinion...hhhmm olympic champ biggs who threw away his career or slobbish chisora who didnt have 20% of the talent of biggs.

    Biggs didnt really have a "best" as a pro ...due to his problems but id say he was a much more skilled and better fighter in a far far tougher era ( once u take out tyson fury who is an atg hw imo ) than a guy like chisora who wouldve been domestic level in masons era.

    Its because mason was "struggling" and beat biggs in a high quality fight that i rate it as a better win than whytes defeat of chisora ..try to understand the nuance Mark....id say David Bey was better than chisora...outside the big 3 champions and ortiz and povetkin this is a very weak hw division wheras in biggs time...there is huge depth and talent.
