Corrie Sanders (RIP) took away a huge chunk of Lennox's what could have been Resume
Corrie Sanders took away a big part of Lennox's resume in what could have been.
Wladimir was suppose to fight Lewis right after Sanders tune up.
Lennox was faded and past prime, but a few factors.
1- Manny (RIP) was a great trainer and followed Wladimir for years, that was always the big fish to fry. There was no way Lewis would have taken Wladimir lightly, in fact Manny often said if Lewis fought Wladimir in the early 2000's they would have taken that fight more seriously than a Tyson fight.
2- Wladimir was an offensive machine with surreal flaws in the early 2000's that Lennox would have exploited. Even a old faded version of Lewis would have brutally walked Wlad down and KO Wlad.
Lennox is all wrong for Wlad prime for prime and he DEFINITELY was all wrong for Wlad in the early 2000's.
It would have been a brutal KO from Lewis, this would have been the first time in history an aging champion KO the future dominant champion. IT was so close to happening too. Sadly Wladimir was beaten half to death by Sanders and that was that.
