For me it's Lennox, he beat both of the guys on that poll and had a devastating punch, coupled with great skill. His resume is better than Tyson and on par with Holyfield (as heavyweight of course) minus Bowe, but it's obvious Bowe didn't want any piece of Lennox.

Accomplishments = Lennox just squeaks it out by being THE MAN at the conclusion of the era.
Resume = Holyfield. the guy literally has fought everyone. e.g

James Tillis
Buster Douglas
George Foreman
Larry Holmes
Riddick Bowe x3
Michael Moorer
Ray Mercer
Mike Tyson x2
Lennox Lewis x2
John Ruiz x3
Chris Bryd
James Toney
Nikolai Valuev

Just to name a few.

Evander for me! Better all around fighter, he could box and punch was capable of some inside and outside boxing and could give and take. Had the best "heart" of his era! To climb from 175 to 215+ and be competitive at a high level against top contenders is impressive! Ray.

Evander Holyfield. Greatest CW of All time, beating fellow greats Qawi and De Leon at the weight. Excellent HW resume too facing everyone! Beat Tyson and gave a basically prime Lewis absolute hell in the rematch while past his own best.

Lewis a close second.


Mike Tyson a distinct third despite being for my money the best H2H fighter of the three and the fighter who at all of their respective bests would come out on top

Dyna76; Lewis got blasted out of there by who????? Some ATG????
Evander gets stopped by a guy who CAN box/fight and its 7 years past his bout with Tyson. When you loose to talent its understandable, not acceptable but better than loosing to guys who had little talent, they could just punch! Ask Lenox, he can tell you.
Nothing against Lenox he cashed in at the right time but he never fought the career that Evander had.

Tyson for me. From the start of his career to 1989 puts him on a par with Lewis for me, plus the fact that he won the title twice puts him ahead of Lewis. Plus the fact that he is the youngest Heavyweight champ and has a very high KO ratio.

IMO Holyfield isn't near as good as Tyson or Lewis solely at Heavyweight. Including his entire career he would at least be held in the same esteem, but not exclusively at heavy.
