    Anything is possible but he went more than 2 rounds vs many lesser men than Wilder.

    He did true, but I always thought that Lewis would try get rid of Wilder early due to his punching power. You wouldn't want Wilder hanging around too long and Lewis definitely had the tools to do it.

    Im not hating on anyone. But which SHW's did Lewis fight? Vitali. He won that one Due to cuts and rightfully so. Vitali's resume is trash and he is overhyped compared to Wlad because of it.

    We cant expect Lewis to dominate this SHW era because he knocked out small and short plodders in The past.

    As soon as size advantage goes alot of other skills fades to. We only have:

    Lewis vs Vitali.
    Wlad vs Fury.
    Wlad vs Joshua.

    So not much of references to even suggest anything to begin with.

    But all of this fighters are in The same ball park so to speak.

    I personally thinks Fury as of today is the best based on overall size/talent and skillset.

    Wlad ano 2010 comes second.

    Etc etc.

    But fights could still go either way.

    Lewis would need to turn it into a brawl, which he is very capable of doing and an underrated trait of his. Fury close decision

    Lewis would employ the Vitali match tactics where if he realized he was getting outboxed, he would try desperately to get Fury out of there. Could Fury weather the form or dish out firepower of his own? Lewis's best weight was 249 lbs whereas Fury has already shown he can fight like a boss at 274 lbs and still be very light on his feet with plenty of gas in the tank.

    Lewis when he realized he could not KO someone, settled for out boxing an opponent utilizing his long reach, size, he very rarely got a late KO. Intriguing fight

    Lewis will need a KO to win. There is no way he is going to outbox Fury, Fury has more tools than him and the only thing he will be wary of is Lewis's punching power and right hand and as we have seen in the Wilder fights, he knows how to neutralize it. Plus Fury can switch from Orthodox to Southpaw on the fly and Lewis wouldn't be able to predict which punch is coming from where.

    I think team Fury pays you to advertise them.
    Or you are just crazy.
    All your posts are just promoting Fury.
    You never even posted about any other boxer.
    They just bought this account to promote their guy.

    Just like he took out Grant. I think Grant was actually better than Wilder because he could box a little

    Besides the Jab Vitali Klitschko managed to outbox and outwork Lewis. Fury could do the same.

    I thought Lewis best Weight was around 240?

    I can’t believe people are even debating this, even the Fury acolytes!

    Lewis absolutely ruins him,
    If they swap jabs then Fury gets beaten up at distance because Lewis hits much harder and on the occasions that he follows up successfully with the right hand, Fury would get smashed up and possibly knocked out.

    If Lewis decides to get in close and make it a brawl then his inside game would break Fury’s body and when Lewis rips in the uppercuts it’s ruinous for Fury.

    Fury can not see the end of this fight!

    Fury has a reach, Speed and Weight advantage behind his Jab...

    In close Fury is taller and heavier than Lennox. And staminawise I give it to Fury.
