    Mike tyson beat razor ruddikk 2 times before lennox fight he was done

    Ray mercer wasnt in prime And he won that fight

    Holyfied was 37 when he fought lennox

    Shannon briggs

    And

    Andrew golota

    Were avg fighters

    Klitchsko was controversial at best and lennox didnt want the rematch

    Tyson was well past prime when they fought

    I mean way past

    Lennox resume dont stack up he was good tho

    Up and coming but not close to goat

    The thing that's tough is despite Lewis, Tyson and Holyfield all fighting each other none of them were in their primes at the same time. Tyson was around 85-89, Holyfield 88-94 and Lewis 95-01

    Lewis clearly beat Holyfield in the first fight but Evander gave Lennox all kinds of fits in the second fight. Lewis' style benefited him to be effective in his later years in ways Tyson and Holyfield's couldn't.

    He definitely emerged the victor of the three (and Bowe) from that era but prime for prime those matchups are still what ifs as far as I'm concerned

    Riddikk Bowe knew after this moment that he was too scared to face Lennox

    I thought Lewis was already regarded by boxing experts(not casuals) to be the second greatest hw? or atleast top 3

    some people here are smoking crack

    90s heavyweights are only second to 70s

    matter of fact guys getting ktfo'd in the 90s later held belts in the 2000s/Klitscko era (Briggs, Maskaev)

    he was in rehab for drugs...don king for whatever pulled him out of it to face lennox for the vacant belt

    and it was a fight where mccall beat himself more than lewis beat him...lewis lands flush shots on mccall and mccall remained clear eyed and upright..lewis did nothing spectacular other than land punches on a fighter who was in no mental condition to fight...it sucks all around
