Vitaly Klitschko. And it was a past prime version of Lewis that beat him. So that kills any argumant that Lewis couldn't beat a prime fighter. It's not Lewis fault that Bowe avoided him. Add David Tua and Michael Grant too. Grant was unbeaten and considered a good shot to upset Lewis at the time. It's easy to forget that now.Lewis fought who he could. And Lewis wasn't in his prime for either Holyfield or Tyson either.

Lewis fought a few fighters that were near the top of their game:


Frank Bruno
Oliver McCall (first time out)
Ray Mercer
Shannon Briggs
Michael Grant
Francois Botha
Hashim Rahman


Problem is non were particularly decent heavyweights in a hall of fame sense and two of the above knocked Lewis spark out!!!

Sadly Lewis missed peak Holyfield, peak Bowe and peak Ibeabuchi. His resume would be so much stronger for wins over these!

If he could beat them and that's a big if, don't think he would be capable of beating any of them at the time of their primes.

He is a top ten AT with a strong resume,no need for hate threads like this or threads about how he was the 'greatest heavyweight of all time'

its truly pathetic

I, for one, am not a Lewis hater. I just wasn't that impressed with him while he was fighting and time hasn't changed that opinion.

Lewis an excellent fighter; definitely a HOF fighter and I think he and Holyfield will be remembered as being the best Heavy's of the 1990s. He is definitely a TOP 20 Heavyweight. I think that he barely cracks the TOP 10. He definitely does not deserve to be considered as one of the ATGs.

Johnson
Dempsey
Louis
Marciano
Liston
Ali
Frazier
Foreman
Holmes

are, IMO, above him.

Now being in the TOP 20 or "barely cracking the TOP 10" does not mean that Lewis is a bum.

Vitali - fight was stopped prematurely Lennox refused rematch

Every big name on his resume was shot or far past prime.
