      • Nah. Keep it at heavyweight, but make it a tournament of people that were never champs:

        Shavers, Galento, Firpo, etc.

  • I just don’t see Lennox losing to a 205lbs opponent, even if it was Frazier.

      • I do remember Oliver McCall dropping Lewis in the first fight with a perfect counter. The rematch was very bizarre in which McCall thru the towel in over a nervous breakdown.

    • I agree. Love Joe Frazier, of course, but I think Lewis is a terrible matchup for him.

    • If I had to pick I would probably go with Lewis BUT here is a guy who was stopped by Rahman and McCall. Frazier was an expert at getting inside and hammering away. I say Lewis but with 55% probably, it is a close one.

  • I could see that happening. Lewis never had anybody walking up on him the way Frazier did. Ali had much faster hands and ability and Frazier gave him fits. Is Lewis that much better than Ali?
