    Dude had a bevy of masterful combos and a devestating right hand.

    Shout out to Shannon Briggs for not getting enough respect either

    Number #2 behind Ali

    Probably one of the most underrated athletes of all time. Dude literally had knockout power in both hands

    So good he had Riddikk Bowe and George Foreman scared to face him :mjlol:

    I used to piss off this old Bush supporter white guy at work by telling him Lewis was the greatest heavyweight ever.

    fukk no

    He is not ahead of Ali, Holmes, Frazier, Foreman and thats not mentioning old school cats like Louis, Patterson

    Hell, I'd put Holyfield ahead of him. Lewis is top 15 sure but come on.

    Lennox ain't number 1 on my list but he is an all time great and underrated by the masses cause of the two knockout losses he took. Even though he avenged both of them people still held it against him and acted like if he was touched he went down. When in all reality McCall and Rahman landed two perfectly placed punches that probably would have dropped most heavyweights.

    - Beat Razor Ruddok in his prime
    - Beat Ray Mercer in his prime
    - Beat Holyfield when he was a 2 time champ AND a belt holder
    - Beat Shannon Briggs in his prime
    - Beat Andre Golatta in his prime, same dude that beat Riddikk Bowe twice
    - Beat Klitschko in his prime
    - Beat every fighter he ever faced
    - Lennox Lewis was OLDER than Tyson when he faced him. So what does that say about Tyson?


    The confused hate for Lennox Lewis never ceases to amaze me :mjlol:

    Lewis was definitely the most underrated fighter ever. I wouldn't go as far as number 1 though. Somewhere top 10 for sure.
