    Norton takes him out Bobick style.

    Ken would be easily outboxed at long range, finishing with a late round tko with Norton on the ropes ala Gerry C00ney.

    Norton is too chiny. Leni takes this

    I would never admit Leni Chinny can't take a punch to the face Lewi is not chinny. The question is does Norton has the power to hurt Lewi, can he deal with the size disadvantage, Lewi himself has one of the hardest punchers in his history especially in his right hand, can Norton deal with it?

    Yeah, Norton KO's him so do his wife and kids, his grandmother, the guy next door, his plumber, everyone Norton ever spoke to and every Light Heavy, Cruiser, and Heavyweight who ever laced a pair of gloves amateur or pro.

    So now you can do everyone a favour and FUK OFF.

    MUPPET.

    If Norton had a better chin he might give Lewis some issues but he doesn't, Lennox bombs him out without too much difficulty.

    Norton would probably lose. Lewis hit too hard and Norton never handled great punchers well. I think Norton has a few good moments early but it ends with a mid fight Ko for Lewis.

    I like Lennox because of Norton's freezing up against big punchers ...

    I can't really figure out a good guess as to how the styles match up exactly, but they both have the necessary punch to knock the other one out.
    I suspect they might fight quite cautiously in the early rounds, trading jabs, boxing well.

    I think Norton is hugely underrated and Lewis a bit overrated, so I'd expect people to say Lewis would be a firm favourite.

    The only possible way Lewis loses is if he puts his arrogant hat on, convinces himself Norton is merely a wan ker, and doesn't train properly, just like he did in Rahman 1.

    No with the knowledge of Kens weakness ( he could not back up)it would be a quick fight for Lewis. In fact I dont give Ken a chance against most punchers unless he got off first

    Lennox would keep Ken at enough distance so he couldn't do any damage.Also, he would win a clearcut 12 round decision.
