Lennox beats him H2H and doesn't lose to Lhw's
Ken Norton wasn't 38, he was 34.
He just gets 1 punched KOd twice by lower tier opponents and gets a questionable decision vs a guy Larry Holmes played with at age 42
That Olympic stoppage was bull. They had an agreement in place to do a fight in 94 but Lennox got knocked out by McCall
I have Holmes rated slightly higher but you could easily make a case for Lewis. Holmes missed fighting quite a few top fighters from his era and Lennox pretty much fought them all.
Those "best" you are referring to had already lost to those Holmes faced. Also, that's an unfair example since there were 17 years between Holmes and Tyson. Whereas, there were only 5 between Lewis and Klitschko. Tyson was the undisputed, undefeated champ, while Klitschko previously sustained a loss when he quit vs. a blown-up middleweight in Chis Byrd.
And do the UK fans really claim Lennox anyway? He grew up in Canada.
I have Lennox at #6 and Larry at #7. Lennox eekes it out because he unified and arguably had better opposition.
Generally Larry is rated higher than Lewis

Is that the thread in which your OP was so blatantly biased that you spent the next week getting your ass kicked?
It's the time I made the second most popular thread on this forum in the last 12 months, even though I don't make threads.
That would be a "Yes" then.
