Was Lewis over Vitali the greatest heavyweight win since 2003?

    Sure, sure, buddy, lol. They all got rich betting on Fury then!

    Fury's win over Wlad and Ruiz's upset win with 4 knockdowns over Joshua are as good as the Lewis 6 rounds cuts over VK, I personally think.
    Vitali got better after that with seasoning and experience, imo.

    Brewster-Wlad I was a wild brawl and upset win too. It nearly finished WK so full respect to Wlad for the rest of his career.

    That fight did a lot for lewis’s Legacy that’s for sure, some disagree but what a great way to go out, gritting out a win balls out on display. I’d rate Fury’s higher though as he beat a long reigning dominant champ.

    That cut was unfixable.

    Maybe Dr. McCoy could have closed it.:D

    There have been better heavyweight fights since then. I don't know if there have been many heavyweight hall of famers who were stopped in six rounds, so in terms of the opponent who lost, it might be the best, most exciting win.

    Vitali was going to win that fight if not for the cuts. Lewis should have given him a rematch. Ali fought Frazier and Norton a couple of times that is why he is great.
