    Holmes also got up when tyson landed that atomic right hand, maybe the hardest punch he ever threw.
    Lewis would have leave the ring on a stretcher if he caught that punch.

    If my auntie had balls she'd be my uncle. Pure speculation on both counts.

    His chin was neither iron or glass, it was average.

    Tua>>>>>>Rahman & McCall.
    Numerous prone Lewis victims>>>>>>Rahman & McCall

    As for ktfo, guy was on his feet hoping to box on in one of them. It's called a "tko". In the other he was trying to get up, eyes open. He was no more ktfo than Tyson and Rahman as they crumbled at his feet.

    Perhaps it wasn't iron but I'd still say it was a bit better than average. He traded back and forth at will for 10 rounds with Ray Mercer.. Took huge shots from Frank Bruno and was getting beaten to the punch for the first four rounds against Vitali Klitschko while being in the twilight of his career. You can't do that with an average chin.

    If I remember correctly, he did hit Lewis with a left hook at the end of round one
    right before the bell which Lewis took.

    I think Lewis rolled with it while bouncing off the ropes.

    Solid like the way mccall or rahman hit him

    Well then that's not Lewis' problem when all Tua was capable of was landing one glancing blow in 12 rounds of fighting.
