    Ezz of the second Maxim fight vs Steele of the Lesnevich fight, so roughly 165ish.
    15 rounds, who wins?

    Steele. As awesome as Charles was at Middleweight, he really came into his own as a Light Heavyweight. I don't think Charles is negative for him stylewise (though not 'positive' either).

    Oh god, that version of Steele is lethal.

    Charles is the overall much greater fighter, though.

    Very good match up!
    Steele is dangerous and Charles of course also a great fighter. But I'm leaning towards Ezz ever so slightly in a fight where he's pushed to his limits. Charles would grow up quickly in this fight, he'd get a close decision win imo.

    I think Steele seems to swing wild and over reach .. I know he was very good, no question but Charles was an exceptional fighter .. I see Steel getting clocked ..

    Steele. People overrate Charles and underrate Steele.
