Neither were world class punchers.
Lewis fought Tua, Ruddock, Tyson, Mercer, Morrison, Briggs, Holyfield, and Vitali in addition to those two fighters. Those are world class punchers. The point is: Lewis fought plenty of punchers. It takes more than just a big punch to stop Lewis. It takes skill, as well. Every one of the above mentioned fighters (with the possible exception of Briggs) has far more skill than Wilder. If Lewis takes a fight with Wilder seriously, he would annihilate Wilder in a few rounds.
You need to understand it was not his chin that was the problem, other factors like in Rahman fight he bounced off the ropes and crosses his legs over meaning he was off balance when the punch landed with no defense or base. The maccall loss was stopped premature at 7 on his feet,
The point is he was knocked spark out by two fighters that aren't as good as the list you mentioned. History did show Lewis could be flattened by average contenders.
Lewis would pump Wilder.
lewis smash early.
Lewis Grant 2
(of a person, thing, or activity) of or among the best in the world.
"a world-class player" ·
I guess this an argument more about semantics than boxing, but I submit that when Rachman and McCall fought Lewis they were among the best in the world as far as punching power.
None would make a HW punchers list.
rahman koed him spark out. its 1, by your definition.
you must stick to your definition or you ruin your post.
Nah, you don't understand what you are talking about. Timing and precision is everything. Answer yourself how many fighters would withstand or get up and survive these exact punches. Not so many. The Rahman one would KO most, definitely most. In McCall case, the fight was stopped too soon to be honest.
He was knocked out by both, they did all they needed to do and that's the bottom line.
Oh but I do, Lewis was flattened twice by fighters who are not known as monster HW punchers and that is a fact.
Rahman's punching power is definetely top notch. Name me fighters, that wouldn't be KO'd by that exact punch Lewis took in the first fight. Cause you just sound like a hater
40-years -old Holyfield was hit by exactly the same punch from Rahman and didn't even blink.
