    Default Who was better, Lewis or Wlad?

    Lennox Lewis and Wladimir Klitschko have a lot in common. They were both tall, hard-punching HWs with weak chins, they were both dominant HWs, and they were both trained by Emanuel Steward. But, who was the better fighter between them?

    Better how specifically?

    Both were all-time great champions.


    I think that if they had fought during their careers it's probable that Lewis would win although not a certainty and a Prime vs Prime could be seen as a toss up.


    Lennox is probably the tougher of the two, Wlad probably the more cagey of the two. Lennox probably a better improviser in the ring and Wlad probably better at sticking to a game plan.

    A shot Lewis stopped the bigger tougher brother in a close fight..which retired Lewis.

    Lewis is better than Wlad because he had more spite to him.

    Lewis was a tactician whose power benefited from his size. Wlad was an athlete whose patience and style benefited from his discipline.

    I'd go with Lewis. He knew when to walk a guy around the block a few times and when it just easier to blitz them. His discipline waned sometimes and he came in bloated but he's beaten a wider variety of fighters. Some were more flash than cash (grant) and some were shells of their former selves (tyson) but he had the holyfields, the mccalls, the mercers, the golotas, and Vitali etc. Just cant say the same for Wlad
    They want your @$$ beat because upsets make news. News brings about excitement, excitement brings about ratings. The objective is to bring you up to the tower and tear your @$$ down. And if you don't believe that, you're crazy.

    Lewis was a seasoned world champion who could dig deep and take the fight by the horns if he had to.

    Both great fighters, yes they were great including Wlad. You do not be a champion for that long but Lewis fought better fighters and would have forced the fight against a vulnerable Wlad. No way could Wlad tie up Lewis.

    Lennox would have detonated that uppercut he used against his brother but Wlad would be knocked out cold.

    Yeah, LENGTH OF REIGN as champion is something yall might want to look into. Wlad is the 2nd longest reigning, defending heavyweight champion in the HISTORY of the heavyweight division.

    Yeah and Lennox ended his career SPRINTING away from a rematch against Vitali......meanwhile Wlad went out tried to get a rematch with Fury who took a hiatus to snort blow and ended up having an extremely long layoff again and then he fought Anthony Joshua tooth and nail.

    Lennox did not sprint. Vitali eye was going to take too long to heal and Lennox was not waiting for no one. Nothing else to prove for mighty Lennox Lewis.

    LOL.... sure thing bro

    Lennox vs Vitali happened June 21, 2003
    Vitali vs Kirk Johnson happened December 6, 2003


    Lennox was of course free to leave the scene as the division was passing him by and that's exactly what he did.

    6 months.

    The overweight and out of shape Lennox was too much for Vitali. A fit version beats Vitali in better fashion.

    That's your GUESS because they never had a rematch. They never had a rematch because Vitali was too dangerous. It wasn't the lack of money, it wasn't the lack of fan interest, everyone bar Lennox and his fans wanted that rematch.
