    I'd say top 5, I really would, he was the best of his generation.

    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.

    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
