I think it's far to say Riddick has taken one shot too many.

I think he would have beaten Lewis as well. Shame, he did what he did and avoided it.

bowe didnt avoid lewis, he wanted that fight more than anyone. it was his promoter that didnt have enough faith in him and wouldnt allow him to get in the ring with lennox. bowe simply pulled a pacquiao and did whatever his handlers told him regardless of what the fans wanted, but he wanted that fight.

People put too much into lewis beating bowe in the olympic finals or semi finals. Riddick Bowe was one of those guys that improved real fast after turning pro, and at that point Lewis was still very good, but would get cracked, and I do not think he would have been able to take those patented Bowe uppercuts.

I think it would could have went either way.

Bowe was wise to duck Lewis.

Lewis was too big, too strong, too fast, too precise and had too much reach. On top of that, Bowe had no defense and couldn't throw a straight right.

It would have been target practise for Lewis.

If a fighter really wants something he would make it happen. Bowe was afraid of Lewis you could see that in the argument after the Holyfield fight. Chicken Bowe didn't want none.

Lewis would have demolished Bowe and Bowe knew it

That is exactly the way I remember it. Bowe ducked Lewis. Maybe he is so punchy he got it backward.
