Lewis was big, no doubt.

Ali has the speed edge for sure, and I think he has the better chin. It'd be an epic battle of jabs for awhile, with Ali's faster and sharper jab beating Lewis to a a narrow decision.

I've always said Lennox is one of the HW's prime for prime I could see giving Ali the most difficulty. Lewis, Holmes, and Holyfield.

Lewis would have a very good chance against Ali.

Tyson has very little/no chance vs Ali.

Ali over Liston was one of the biggest upsets and greatest wins in boxing, hands down. No one thought he'd beat Liston.

Would be a great fight!

Anyhow Ali had too much of everything for Lewis to handle. UD or late KO Ali.
