Who do you all think would have won this fight any why??

I'm getting bored with mostly talking about Mayweather,Pac-man,and Marquez..So lets get this thread going..I'm hoping to hear some good break downs..

If Ibeabuchi could have got his hands on the pre-Steward Lewis then I'd take Ike by brutal KO...

Let's assume that both are in their primes then I'd take Lewis by wide UD.

Ike was able to do jack shit with Tua so I doubt he'd have the tools to take out a prime Lennox. I know I'm in the minority here but I've watched Tua/Ibeabuchi a heap of times (primarily because it's one of the best heavyweight scraps of the modern era) and at no point can I give that fight for The President. Yes I gave him all the early rounds but I gave Tua all the rounds from mid way on and I think Tua buzzed Ike more than Ike buzzed Tua.

But back to your question Jonny. When Lennox decides to he is a very effective safety first fighter (take the Tua figth as a prime example) and seeing Ike as a legitimate threat he would've used that all time great jab of his to keep him at bay and frustrate him. Ike had big time heart in the ring no doubt but Lewis had big time ring smarts, so he wins. At the end of the day just too technically proficient.

Good points Ollie..I think you're right about Lennox's jab being a big factor and I agree Lennox had the edge in ring smarts..

I don't agree with what you said about the Tua fight though..I thought it was an amazing fight first off but I saw the fight in Ike's favor..His output in that fight was something no other heavyweight could do ever again(in my opinion)..He is able to take a massive shot too..It was definitely a close fight and just talking about it makes me want to watch it again..Maybe tonight after class..(IMG:style_emoticons/default/thumbsup_anim.gif)

My opinion is still to come later..

His jab was overrated but his right wasn't. He was able to keep Tua at bay because well... we know all about Tua.

Lewis by DQ. Ike would have had a meltdown getting soundly outboxed by LL, and he eventually would have probably hit him after the bell or threw him out of the ring, or broke the stool over his head, or something like that.

Whether you think it was overrated or not,it was powerful and the more he threw it,the better he'd do in a fight..
