He did what he had to do and he did it in a brutal fashion. Tyson was just one of them fighters he had to face otherwise you would have retards saying he ducked him.

Pretty much. I actually ordered the Tyson vs. Williams PPV hoping that Tyson could go out with a win. How disappointed I was. I couldn't be upset for long, it was the great Danny Williams that he fell to.

It really isn't that great of a win for Lewis. Good name for his resume but Tyson was pretty much done by the time they fought. He sure did hype the fight though.

Not very good win.

It was more or less for the money from Tyson at that point. Lennox got too much credit for the win against ghost version of Tyson.

This. I mean it made a lot of money as well but its one of those fights that had to happen. especially after Tyson KOed Golota in one round which made him look way better than he was because of Golotas mental issues with freezing up. If they never fought there would still be some dumbasses talking about how Tyson would have beat Lewis anytime in the late 90s to early 2000s.

The general public thought tyson could win but everyone serious into boxing knew he didnt have much chance at all and was going to get his ass schooled.

About as much credit as Danny Greens win over Roy Jones.

As boxing fans we need to stop praising guys for beating shot/done fighters.

That win meant nothing and only a fool would argue other wise.

No credit at all, and only a small amount for beating Holyfield.

Tyson was done when he went to jail in 92; he went thru the motions from that point on.

Tyson ducked Lewis for long enough, so Lewis can't be blamed for fighting a shot fighter.
