Holmes has survived many nasty fights throughout his career (Shavers (2x), Norton, Weaver, Berbick, Snipes, Cooney, Witherspoon, Smith, Williams, Spinks, M., Mercer, McCall) and won most of them. Lewis cannot lay claim to winning to many wars. For me, the wins over Bruno, Mercer, Briggs, and Klitschko are the only ones that come to mind. Another way to look at it is, what's the best punch Larry took in his life? The Shavers right hand. But Larry got up and won that fight, and in blistering fashion. What's the best punch Lewis ever took? Either the McCall right, or more likely you believe it to be the Rahman right. Lewis lost both those fights. Now, do you think Shavers hit harder than Rahman and McCall, or not?
