When a man becomes preeminent it is natural to seek his limitations.
A focused Lewis might stop Usyk . His jab would be too much
Iennox would beat him. Maybe stop him, maybe on points, but definitely wins.
I would favor Lewis but Usyk was better than a lot of Lennox’s challengers
He's never fought someone with the combo of skill, power, and size that Lewis has. AJ may be there with the power and size, but he's not in the same league as Lewis in terms of skill.
It would be a real good fight.
Lewis by points, cagey opening that heats up second half of the fight.
Lennox having the jab and centre ring, Usyk throwing some smart two-three punch combinations but both men see the final bell but a clear winner in Lewis.
Yep, definitely reaching Usyk's limits here, in fact, surpassing them lol.
Lewis KO Usyk around 7-8 rds.
Well, not a fact, but y'know....
One the flip side, Lewis never fought a southpaw. For whatever ever reason he never faced one his entire pro career. I would definitely favor Lewis to beat Uysk at this point but stylistically Uysk is a difficult opponent because of his awkwardness, athleticism and overall skillset.
Actually he fought one named Greg Gorrell (though obviously no where near Usyk's class) early in his career.
Yeah I've corrected it a few times over the years but it still gets trotted out.
I think Lennox would lose the first few rounds then take over and honestly I think he gets the stoppage. Usyk doesn't quite have the power necessary. I think Lewis gets a little overrated sometimes but the guys who beat him or even came close, few as they were, did it by power.
