    Same result. Anyway when they fought Steward hadn’t started training Lennox yet. And also when was Bruno’s prime?

    I think Bruno in 1993 was as good as he'd ever been or ever would be.
    So, Lewis stoppage in 7 rounds would be my pick.

    Yes same as actually happened. Frank was always in brilliant shape so I can’t imagine him improving on the result as it happened. With Steward training him Lewis would have performed better but same result.

    I'd take a good version of Bruno over a crap version of Lewis. Lewis was a bit of a late bloomer, some of his early fights were not exactly awe-inspiring.

    If the fight was say 8 rounds or at a push 10 and Frank didn’t get caught by that big left hook he might have got the decision. But I can’t help feeling 12 rounds and maybe even 10 he eventually gets tired and gets caught and stopped. Even when he beat Oliver McCall he had to hold on for his life in round 12. Apparently in training he could go round after round but in the actual fight he eventually tenses up. Oh he caught Lewis with a monster right hand maybe he gets him. A big if.

    Yes it did. Bruno literally fought pre-steward Lewis. I thought people would see that i was just playing around
