Default Who is the most skilled Heavyweight since Ali ..............

Who is the most skilled Heavyweight since Ali ? not talking about achievement but who has had the best skillset since Ali ? The reason i ask is because someone told me they reckon Bowe was and whilst i dont necessarily agree it got me thinking who is the most skilled HW since Ali ?

Thoughts? sorry if ive already posted this.

Holyfield, Bowe, or Lewis.

Holyfield and Bowe liked to trade a lot, but when they boxed they were both very difficult to beat. Holyfield was a nice mover, was quick, and had a great arsenal of punches. He got sucked into brawling a lot though. Bowe had a nice jab, good inside game, good power and combinations.

Lewis had a lovely lead hand, powerful right, great uppercut, controlled distance wonderfully.

It's tough.....


I would say Lewis if we are talking about classical boxing skill, but he wasn't as versatile overall as a guy like Evander who could box and move, brawl and trade with abandon, and fight in close, tying the guy up and pounding him like he did to Tyson. So if we are talking classic boxing skills, then it's Lewis with
Evander second, if it's overall depth of their game (which includes classical skills, but also the ability to trade , out hustle a guy up close etc) then it's Evander with Bowe second and Lewis third.
