    He might was, but not top 5, just around the end of 10 (less talented than Perez) like Whyte and Parker. I don't know why you aksed, as they never have fought.

    He narrwoly dominated all; so from these fights did he lose maybe 5 rounds all together (if Chisora counts, then maybe 7 rounds, out of 13 bouts).

    And we know that Bean, Donald and even Norris were better than Weppner (who was a journeyman as Balboa), Jackson and Botha.

    So he lost the first round vs. Gomez, 1 - 2 rounds against Lewis, possible 2 - 3 rounds vs. Chisora and arguable the first round against Hide (although neither landed anything in it).

    If in doubt, just nod in seeming agreement.

    Better stated Holyfield lost more rounds to Ruiz or Bowe ( Take you pick ) than Vitali did in his entire pro career, Yes, I think so, If you are up for counting, let us know Man_Machine. I take it a silent nod will do, otherwise try a debate on this point.

    LAIR, The bet was easy. Was it filmed? The answer is yes. Not how it came out, is it around today, or was it a re-enactment. YOU LOSE.

    • Complete in six rounds, including training pictures. Needless to say, this is the finest film ever taken. Even though the pictures were taken at enormous expense, the price of the films is within reach of all exhibitors. The greatest money maker.

      Now STFU and go back to your freemason group, one day you might actually find out what they are all about, but to do that you'll need a high rank. As for the reason of your multiple bans there's more to it, and why so many alt account?s

      ***Vitali out there and out landed Lewis in jabs. Those are facts.*** Try embracing them for a change.

    A terrible card. Two 10-10 rounds, and as I guessed you's gave two of the three close rounds to Holyfield to produce this " draw "

    Lewis out landed Holyfield in both jabs and power punches, plus was more accurate. Its clear cut

    I do give you some credit for producing a card and changing your stance from Holyfield won it to draw.


    In the 12th round, Holyfield came out firing, perhaps believing he needed a knockout to win. He staggered Lewis with a big right hand, but Lewis wouldn't go down. When the bell sounded to end the fight, Lewis raised his hands. Holyfield did not. He looked like he knew what was coming.
    Post-Fight Comments

    • "
    • Lennox Lewis: "This was a little tougher than the first fight. I couldn't let my fans down. I couldn't let myself down, because this is my dream. I realize that he wasn't doing nothing with me in the beginning. At times I was playing with him, because when I was jabbing he was coming in with his head. With all this on the line coming in, I knew I had to unify the belts."
    • Evander Holyfield: "Of course, I was surprised. I was just fighting. I just fight and let the judges decide. Of course, I'm disappointed I didn't get the decision. But life is life. I hit him with some shots, and I thought it would catch up to him. I didn't get hurt with the jab. I was able to counter off his potshots. He was able to come back after I hit him with a couple of big shots. The big thing in life is you give it your all. When it falls into the judges' hands, you have to live with their decision."
