Sure some are past prime but there are some very solid wins on there that trump Wlads. not only did he fight better opposition he lost less and avenged his only 2 defeats with stoppage victorys something Wlad never managed to do. I really don't see how you can make a case for Wlads resume being particularly close.
I'll give it a go. Of course I don't say I have to be right, but this is just how I see it.

Lewis lost 2 times and 1 draw, Wlad lost 3 times. Lewis has 41wins (32 KO, 72% KO), Wlad has 58 wins (51KO, 83% KO). So not going in details at the moment, looking just the numbers, at very worst (for Wlad) they are equal - but actually it looks better for Wlad (yes Lewis opposition is better).

I chose 10 notable Lennox's and Wlad's wins (arguably 10 best wins).

In squares there is the record of the opponent when they fought with the age of the fighter (this could be some indication how far from the prime opponent was - not too accurate). I gave a mark for every fight. I took into account the time when they fought, how fight ended and the quality of the opponent at that time.

Lennox :

Holyfiled (36-3-1, 37) - UD 8-4 --> 9
Golota (28-2 , 29) - KO2 --> 9
Bruno (36-3, 32) - TKO7 --> 7
Vitali (32-1 ,32) - TKO6 --> 7
Rahman (35-2, 29) - KO4 --> 7
Briggs (30-1 , 27) - TKO5 --> 7
Tua (37-1, 28) - UD 10-2 --> 8
Morrison (45-2-1, 26) - TKO6 --> 7
Tyson (49-3-2, 36) - KO8 --> 7
Rudock (27-3-1, 31) - TKO2 --> 7

Wlad :

Haye (25-1, 29) UD 7-3 --> 8
Byrd (39-2-1, 30 and 36) - UD and TKO7 --> 7
Peter (24 - 0, 25) UD --> 7
Brewster (30 -2 ,31) TKO6 --> 7
Ibragimov (22-0-1, 32) UD 10-2 --> 7
Botha (44-3-1, 33) TKO8 --> 7
Chambers (35 - 1, 28) KO12 --> 7
Thomson (31-1, 37) KO11 --> 7
Chagaev (25-0-1, 30) TKO9 --> 7
Brock (29-0,31) TKO7 --> 7

Lennox 75, Wlad 71

Wlad is still active. I think he has a decent chance to be on pair (or even pass) Lennox resume in 3-4 years time.
