    One of the all time most desired "Dream" fights. Lennox lost only when undertrained &/or when in with a 1 punch ko artist. Larry was undefeated & beat some of the toughest fighters of all-time, while in his prime. It would be very close, with no knockdowns & plenty of jabs from both jab masters. It's a pick-em fight for sure. If it's not a "Draw," I'd have to give the slight edge to Lennox winning a split decision. The big, heavier version was sheer determination. But I could just as easily give the same to Larry.

    In their primes, I'd go with Holmes.

  • A prime Holmes outboxes Lewis, who, while powerful, is much slower.

    Lennox Lewis would knock him out similar to the way Tyson did. He would use his speed and athleticism. It would be competitive though.

    Larry sparred with and learned from Ali. He was a master boxer with probably the best heavyweight jab. He got rocked a few times in his career and always came back. He would jab Lenny's pus off and in Lenny bore in to tussle, Larry would slug it out too. Larry in a unanimous decision.

    Lewis would win by a split or unanaimous decision.
