Default Lewis' Most Exciting Fight?

I've seen Lennox Lewis fights here and there and while I've always respected his ability and especially that power in his right hand, he's never had me cheering. Well, the Klitschko fight was pretty damn good, but that was mostly because of Vitali in my opinion. What is his most exciting fight?

I found the following fights pretty entertaining:

Ruddock
Golota
Bruno
Grant
Briggs
Mercer
Holyfield 2


Lewis could be boring at times but I quite enjoyed a number of his fights, I guarantee the above are not snorefests........although granted some of the opponents were not really in Lewis's league at the time of the fight.

the Mercer fight had alot of back and forth action. The second Rachman fight is pretty entertaining , pretty bad ass knockout.

The end of the first round vs Briggs when he almost KO'd Lewis and had him shook was pretty exciting.

Lewis is absolutely terrible to watch.

His fight with mercer was one of the most entertaining HW scraps of the 90's,I really enjoyed the briggs and bruno fights also.When a fighter is generally quite dominant then their most exciting fights are the ones in which they dont have everything their own way,i.e- Wlad/peter

you cannot have watched many fights from the 90s if you feel Lewis v Mercer was one of the most entertaining of that decade

Alright, thanks guys. I figured that the Mercer one would be pretty good, it's downloading now.
