    Lewis All the way. He would hunt Bowe down and finish him within 8.

    Bowe wouldn't allow himself to lose like that.

    Lewis beat Bowe by knockout at the Olympics.
    Further it is more or less the general opinion that Bowe would win in the early 90s and later Lewis would win.
    I don't understand why that is.
    Lewis has been a 65/35 favorite throughout his career.

    Bowe was getting the best of it in that fight. He looked in control and the favourite to win the fight until he got caught with the overhand right. The stoppage was definitely too quick. Bowe as a pro did show a good ability to get underneath right hands. He would be much more effective on the inside. If you think Lewis is 65% that means his odds should be like 1.54 and Bowe 2.86.

    I would be placing a good sized wager on Bowe at that price.
