Default Why Lewis didn't fight Ruiz

Ok relax Lewis fans! I am not gonna come here and say Lennox ducked RUIZ, of all people. But I just don't understand why he would rather give up the WBA belt than fight him...yes, Ruiz was an ugly fighter with a boring style, but Lewis has been in such fights before. Why would he lose his undisputed championship rather than fighting Ruiz? I think there might be one reason: Lewis liked to bully his opponents. Ruiz was a bully himself and he was a strong man. Not stronger than Lewis, but Lewis wouldn't be able to bully him as much. I guess he knew from the Golota fight that Michael Grant was a wimp, I mean he got beaten up and bullied by a guy smaller than himself! Thats why he chose to fight Grant instead.

Real simple: Grant was HBO's newest overhyped star and there was good money to be made matching him up with Lewis. Who the hell would want to televise a money losing stinker like a matchup with Ruiz? Hindsight maybe 20/20 but at the time Grant was thought of much more highly than Ruiz even by Ring Magazine. Everyone knew Ruiz was a joke and a particularly unwatchable joke at that.

Harsh but true. I find the claim that Lewis ducked JOHN RUIZ to be laughable. It's John Ruiz, people. His nickname is the Quiet Man. Do the math.

Nobody claims he ducked him, but he did refuse to fight him...so technically he did duck him.

I wasn't comparing you, I was giving you an example of two guys who were INSISTENT that Lewis ducked the Boring Man. CarlosG still posts here and sonnyboyx stopped a while ago.
