And not the Oliver McCall that was mentally broken
And not the Oliver McCall that was mentally destroyed
Focused Lewis > Oliver Mccall
Oliver Mccall > Unfocused Lewis
Focused Lewis couldnt put a dent on a mentally destroyed McCall
Oliver Mccall always had a granite chin, it's why he was Mike Tysons sparring partner
Focused & Motivated McCall > Lewis
Holyfield = Wladimir
Mercer > Wallin
Tua > Wilder
Ruddock > Cunningham
Golota > Hammer
Grant > Schwarz
Tucker > Chisora
A completely prepared Steward trained Lewis wins every round. Doesn’t stop McCall. No mistakes from Lewis and he completely outboxes and outsmarts McCall. No need for Lewis to take any risks and he knows it and boxes accordingly.
This would be a rubber match that would garner much attention I'm sure. Lewis would be eager to win more convincingly than previously and McCall would be fighting to eclipse the bad stigma of II. I kind of imagine Lewis winning a hard fought 12-rounder in which he has a few scares. Going toe-to-toe would end the same way it did for anyone who fights that way against McCall. Lewis must keep the exchanges to a minimum and he will win a close decision.
I agree it would be hard fought but I still think that a completely focused Lewis completely sweeps the rounds on ability and skill. And he wouldn’t take any chances of a repeat of the first fight. As long as he gets his 2-1.
Well, I mean close in the way that, do I think Lewis would probably win 8 or 9 of 12 rounds? Yes. But probably half of the rounds are very close. At least imo.
Lewis for me. McCall might catch him again but I wouldn't bet on it.
Was there any timeframe where McCall was likely to do better in a third encounter?
I think that Lewis could have gone in a lot harder if he had wanted to.
