I think they are even, Holyfield-Lewis was for the heavyweight championship of the world while Whitaker-Chavez was for the pound for pound number 1 spot, but if I had to pick one I'd go with Holyfield-Lewis.

I'd say Whitaker-Chavez because Lewis got a chance to do it again. Whitaker didn't.

Lewis-Holyfield I

There were more close rounds in Chavez-Whitaker. I also gave Lewis more rounds (9) than I did Whitaker (8).

Nelson-Fenech I was a worse draw IMO than Chavez-Whitaker.

The first half of Chavez-Whitaker was pretty competitive, then Whitaker took over. With the exception of round 3, Lewis pretty much kicked Holyfield's ass throughout the fight.

Pea was robbed, raped, and left for dead by those judges. This ain't even close.

Eugenia Williams. She's horrible. She scored that fight for Holyfield.

Whitaker-Chavez is an overrated robbery in terms of injustice. It was certainly a bad decision, but I've seen much worse miscarriages of justice in prizefights.

It wouldn't make my top 10 most ridiculous robberies, but Lewis-Holyfield 1 would.

I'll say Lewis-Holyfield since I've seen some interviews with the judges explaining why they scored that fight the way they did.

None of the answers were sensible which makes me believe that the decision was 'fixed' in some way.

The judges may not have been paid off but why would they have inexperienced judges scoring one of the most important heavyweight fights of recent times?

Quote:
"I feel sorry for myself. I've taken so much stick. But I feel even more sorry for Lennox." - British judge Larry O'Connell (who scored the fight 115-115)
I wonder what that's supposed to mean.

The second fight was actually closer but the scores were much wider in Lewis' favour.
