Don’t put Ali and Fury in the same sentence mate!
Top 5 at least.
Probably top 3.
D can certainly name 7 better than him
On his day in his prime could beat any Heavy in history imo
Or just maybe us `old timers` are right
I'd say top 5, I really would, he was the best of his generation.
Go on then
Tyson and there are a few more
I can't see a decent argument for Johnson, Holmes, Liston and Tyson being above him.
Perhaps the late 80s of Tyson beats him head to head, but Lewis had the better career.
Even though he struggled with a post prime Holyfield?
I would love to hear your the list 11 Heavyweights in the History of boxing better than Lennox Lewis..
The people that say D just make me itch my head. Even C would require a lot of persuading. B is the most realistic answer.
He didn't struggle with him at all.
The first fight was a robbery.
The rematch he clearly won.
You include Tyson when Holyfield made him his ***** yet go on to say that LL struggled against Holyfield who LL beat and drew against with the first fight being one of the biggest robberies in HW televised history.
We all know Tyson was past his best v Holyfield.I am talking about fighters in their prime.As for Lewis v Holyfield i was at both fights and yes Lewis deserved to win but it was close .The second fight i scored to Holyfield
