Agreed on all counts. Prime for prime I think I'd pick him over Lennox Lewis.

I can't think of a heavyweight in history who would easily beat a prime, well motivated Riddick Bowe.

I would go with Norton too. I think he surpasses Bowe as a tall good inside fighter.

Bowe was a top draw fighter, for sure.

I'm gonna say the older Larry Holmes, Riddick Bowe, and Evander Holyfield. Holmes was beautiful on the inside in the Mercer fight. Bowe and Holyfield both fought awesome in the trenches in their whole trilogy.

Bowe.

Too bad he had no sort of dedication or discipline.
