    People say this but by the same token prime Mike never fought a fighter on Lennox or Holyfield’s level.

    Timing is also tricky. Lewis peaked late after he added wrinkles to his game. Tyson peaked early.

    I feel Tysons better because he was just that more dominant.. Last man to unify all the belts in the ring and only heavyweight to unify the heavyweight belts twice plus the last heavyweight to be considered p4p the best fighter on the planet

    Holyfield never unified the belts and you could say Lewis and be technically right if you considered The Wbo a real title, but even then Lewis got his first two titles when they were vacated by Bowe and then Tyson. Tysons the last to do it in the ring until Joshua or Fury wins this fight.

    Lennox Lewis is the greatest heavyweight of all time - by the biggest margin. No debate. And I hate him cause he’s #tallgang

    His record speaks for itself. He never strayed away from any big fights even in an era where corrupt promoters kept them from happening. He beat so many champions and retired with a nearly perfect record.

    He was literally unbeatable in his reign and had the perfect formula as a boxer with his height and strategy.


    Just listen to Foreman call him the greatest.

    Spinks and Holmes were very good wins. Razor Rudduk was good too. But honestly he has nothing special after that.

    Bowe was scared of him. Mike didn’t fight him either.

    Bruno? Tucker? Stewart? Golota? Those aren’t good names? By time he was 37/0 he had beaten 8 former title holders.. Tysons record against ranked opponents is 24-3.. the only heavyweights with more are Holyfield and Ali..

    In his career he only had 2 losses and a draw - he came back from and beat both in indisputable fashion. He got beat by Mcall early in his career, came back, and went on to defeat champions. He cannot be denied. He DESTROYED both Holyfield and Rahman in the rematches.

    Like seriously no one ranks above him in that era. In his prime he was untouchable, who do you even rank above him. Dude is GOAT until proven otherwise.

    Listen to the man himself

    lennox got 1 punch ko'ed on 2 occasions to lesser fighters on some upset shyt...thats not unbeatable..no other undisputed heavyweight champion ever lost like that :heh:...never mind the fact he prolly should have lost to mercer and without the cut he was on his way to getting stopped by vitali

    he also didnt destroy holyfield in the rematch..in fact he holyfield made it a hell of a fight for him the 2nd time around lol

    holyfield was the premier heavyweight in his era...he beat better heavyweights than him
