Default Lennox Lewis vs Michael Spinks

who would win this fight and how..
Lewis 6ft 41/2 - Spinks 6ft 31/2.. both are well schooled in the art of boxing ability, but will Lewis be able to beat Spinks with his jab, something Larry Holmes was not able to do over 30rds of boxing, size would not be a factor in this fight as Spinks took apart Gerry Cooney who stood 6ft 7ins and who had one of the most destructive left-hooks of the last 50yrs. Spinks was taken out in one round by a peak Mike Tyson and Lewis was taken out in 2rds by Oliver McCall....
Who would win this fight and How?

Spinks was an Excellent Boxer.

Arguebally the best LH ever.

At HW, he defeated Larry Holmes (Twice) and ended his unbeaten run.

Spinks is one of the most underrated boxers of all time imo, and is remembered for being KO'd by a Prime Tyson.

But that was Prime Tyson !

If you analyse the two, and compare them head to head, Spinks was one of the most craftiest boxers in history, and would never allow anyone to dominate him. So Lewis's trademark defensive nature by utilizing his reach won't work against someone of Spinks's calibre.

Lewis would be favourite, but i'd expect Spinks to win in an upset.

Spinks by Close UD12 or comfortable UD15.

Does anyone really think Spinks beat Holmes either time? While an excellent LHW, and managing to be competitive against an older Holmes at the end of a impressive title reign, there is no way he lasts the distance against a puncher like Lewis.

This match up is almost absurd in Lewis's favour.. Lewis could never get KO'd by Spinks.. He never once wobbled a 38 year old Holmes, needed 4 or 5 shots to put Cooney over (who was an inactive one armed fighter with a suspect chin) and totally **** himself against Mike Tyson.. I'm not ignorant enough to remember him just for that though.. I remember him as the 4th best LH AT, around the same as Lewis at HW..
Can't see Lewis doing the same as Tyson, but I can see him allowing Spinks to box & build up a slight lead, while stalking him for a few rounds.. It wouldn't take long for Lewis to feint a left lead & bring a huge right hand over the top.. Spinks would collapse after about 5 rounds..

laughable analysis .. the version of Mike Tyson who Spinks fought would have taken any fighter who ever lived out very quickly that night... Tyson ment business, the look on his face as he entered the ring was terrifying, he looked like he was gonna murder.. Spinks had excellent footwork whereas Lewis had two left feet, no way Lewis beats Spinks

That's me out!
If you think my analysis is laughable, we'll see what others have to say.. I won't bother giving opinions for Lewis haters to laugh at.. It's obvious your totaly biased in order to create this ridiculous thread in the 1st place.. "The look on Tysons face" lol.. We're talking about a man whose supposed to be fighting for the undisputed championship of the world.. Being PETRIFIED is NOT an option... "No way Lewis beats Spinks" lol
Now go pick on those that didn't even bother to give you an analysis..

i aint a Lewis hater ive seen him fight `live` 6 times and believe me he is overated, in the early 1990s i thought Lewis was unbeatable after watching him against Mason, McCrory, Williams and Ruddock, i started to have my doubts after his fortunate victory over Bruno in Cardiff, in 94 i sat only a couple of rows from ringside at Wembley for the McCall fight, Lewis got knocked out and leaving the ring he had to be helped down the steps by his handlers, they walked only a couple of feet away from me and i could see Lewis eyes was still glass, "he was out of it" i knew there and then that he was not all i thought he was, Lennox fought timid for the rest of his career, being what i call an oppotunist by only fighting fighters who was on the slide and who he had a huge advantage over... If McCall & Rahman could put Lewis lights out then Michael Spinks with his "Spinks Jinx" would smash his lamp into a million pieces .
