LOVE this fight. For me, Lewis was an underrated champion during his tenure and only got his due after he retired. Actually, you could say the same for Holmes! Both fighters had terrific jabs and big power shots but for me Holmes was a little better at everything: Better jab, more power (arguable) and better chin (how the hell did he get up from that Ernie Shavers punch?) and would consistently beat Lewis to the punch to win via late stoppage or a clear points decision.
Who wins between Joe Louis and Tyson/Ali/Frazier/Foreman? (pick any one). For the record, I would place Louis in the top 5 heavyweights ever.
