I've seen Lennox Lewis fights here and there and while I've always respected his ability and especially that power in his right hand, he's never had me cheering. Well, the Klitschko fight was pretty damn good, but that was mostly because of Vitali in my opinion. What is his most exciting fight?

I found the following fights pretty entertaining:

Ruddock
Golota
Bruno
Grant
Briggs
Mercer
Holyfield 2


Lewis could be boring at times but I quite enjoyed a number of his fights, I guarantee the above are not snorefests........although granted some of the opponents were not really in Lewis's league at the time of the fight.

the Mercer fight had alot of back and forth action. The second Rachman fight is pretty entertaining , pretty bad ass knockout.

His fights with Briggs and Mercer were great scraps.

His fights with Briggs and Mercer were great scraps.

The end of the first round vs Briggs when he almost KO'd Lewis and had him shook was pretty exciting.

Lewis is absolutely terrible to watch.

His fight with mercer was one of the most entertaining HW scraps of the 90's,I really enjoyed the briggs and bruno fights also.When a fighter is generally quite dominant then their most exciting fights are the ones in which they dont have everything their own way,i.e- Wlad/peter

you cannot have watched many fights from the 90s if you feel Lewis v Mercer was one of the most entertaining of that decade

Tyson v Holyfield 1 & 2
Holyfield vs Bowe 1,2 & 3
Bowe vs Golota 1 & 2

Can't believe no one has mentioned the Mavrovic fight. Good fight and Mavrovic gave him some problems and he had a granite jaw, shame he never fought again.

He was a brawler early in his career so most of those fights like with Ruddock were pretty high paced. The Klitschko fight is only exciting because of how terrible Lewis looked the first several rounds.

Klitschko fight for me was his most entertaining.
