    Many fighters push away their opponents during a fight, Carlos Monzon, is a perfect example, during his bouts if you notice. He always pushed his opponents away when they were trying to come in close to him, to keep them at bay.

    Lewis was always a very dirty fighter who used many dirty tricks. Pushing, leaning, holding and hitting at the same time. Trunks to his chest (Holyfield 1).

    However, in this exact fight Lewis could've fought as clean as anyone and still would've stopped that version of Tyson who was just taking punishment since round 2.

    pointless fight in my eyes, its irrelevant that Lewis pushed him, Tyson was going to lose whatever the case. I think Tyson stayed down so long because he couldn't get up quickly, his body was so done by then. The only good thing about this fight was that Tyson took the loss well and restored his reputation a bit, was probably worth the beating just for that....
