    Mimi ni mpenzi mkubwa wa Boxing,

    Then,ninapata wakati mgumu kuelewa kwamba who was the best boxer bwetween Tyson and leenox Lewis.

    Lewis beat tyson in undisputed heavy weight champion for the WBC crown in eight round.He used his powerful jabs and left hook to send tyson on the canvas.

    Tyson gain his world championship when he was just eighteen years of age.He beat some of the big fighters including Larry homes.But larry homes was above 40yrs when he fough tyson

    Records for tyson stands at 50wins,44knock outs and 5 losses while lewis records stands at 41wins,32knockouts,2losses and 1 draw. Lewis avanged all his losses to Oliver MC Call and Hashim Rahman.When fighting rahman lewis smash him with ferocious upercuts and right hook and while at the canvas rahman said ''' WHERE IS THE TRAIN THAT HIT ME? '''

    The question remain can we rank lewis above tyson?

    Are u sure...Mike tyson does not posses gold medal but lenno lewis has it . Mike tyson defeated Francois Botha in 5 round but lewis just use two round to send botha on canvas.tyson was beaten twice by Evander but Lennox beat Evander two times,Tyson was afraid stepping into the ring with Ridick Bowe but lewis smash bowe to win the Gold medal and later in professional carrier Bowe avoided lewis by throwing the WBC belt on the trash instead of facing Lennox Lewis.

    Lewis beat every individual he faced and when he beat tyson the HBO commentator George Foreman said '''' There is no one in the world can take that belt from lennoxlewis ''' and that it was...... rahman tried to take it but he failed also Vitali klitcho tried but was sent to the canvas.So lewis was having the belts till he dicided to end his career and retire.

    So u shouldnt think of ranking tyson over lewis ..........................................

    i think your missing a point, being a best boxer not only consider whom did you beat even if that is one of the criteria, mike tyson is considered the best because his body itself was against him as he had short reach( short fore limb), he was short interms of height, he had small body, so he was ouclassing a boxer with longer reach, tall, powerful than him etc lennox lewis had everyting, good reach, height, power, body weight, tall etc so he had plenty to aid him in fight so it was like almost automatic he will win a contest! tyson uses speed, great agility, movement, escape puches and even hit the guy with longer reach by excelent timing that what makes tyson better than lewis!

    We should consider that tyson did manage defeating the tall boxers like Golota,Spinks and other.In early rounds he defeated them.So saying that lewis has everything and at last ranking Tyson over Lewis i do not agree .
