You know it's going to happen eventually. Probably next year. The public wants it. The media wants it. The sport of Boxing needs it. Tyson vs. Lennox, who wins?
Make your pick..........mine is Lewis easily takes out Mike

Tyson is washed up. Lewis in a quick one. Then Tyson can join his buddies Dennis Rodman and Michael Irvin as professional greeters at a Las Vegas casino.

I can't see Tyson beating Lewis. Lewis is just so damned tall that he doesn't let anyone actually fight him...he just kind of keeps you at bay with that long jab. Tyson would probably just get frustrated big time. It was really frustrating when Lewis fought Holyfield, and he never once hurt him. After the fight, Holyfield had no marks on his face. Not one, in a 12 round heavyweight fight. Yet Lewis wins on "points", because he kept tapping him on the head with the jab. Boring. Maybe if he would actually fight, he wouldn't have gotten a bum decision. But anyway, I don't think Tyson deserves a shot at the title. He hasn't beaten anybody yet.

I think that Lewis would win easily. If that fight were to happen, I don't see it going any longer than 5 rounds.
My dream job is to be a Houston Rockets towel-boy.
I think to beat Tyson, you have to outsmart him. I don't think Lewis is that smart of a fighter. The one thing I like about Tyson as a fighter is that he seems to be back in his street mode after his friends death and when he was like that he was beating everyone.
Having typed all that, Lewis will win not because he is smarter or bigger, but because Tyson is dumber and smaller. Lewis in 9 or 10. We will wear Mike out. But there will be times when Mike will land punches on Lewis that he has never felt from anyone before.

I love Tyson, but I dont see him beatin Lennox. I agree with Freak. Lennox is I think 6'3 and Tyson is only 5'10. The long arms of Lennox wont even let Tyson in. But if Tyson can break through the jabs, Lennox wont know what the hell hit him. Lennox in a decision.

Boxing does not NEED this fight. If anything boxing needs to move away from his circus act and get back to the grass roots of matching true contenders to fight and not this crap like we saw over the weekend!
Anyway, this fight won't last more than 4-5 rounds because of the baggage Tyson carries. He or his corner will end up doing something stupid to give the sport another black eye. Tyson is a sideshow and little else.
Don't you have anything better to do?

I think it takes a little more than that. It wouldn't be too hard to find someone smarter. -- Of course, how smart is it to ask to fight with Tyson?

The only way I'm watching this fight is as a replay on Showtime or whatever. If I did pay for PPV, the fight would end in the first round with Tyson and his camp causing some kind of controversy. I still think Tyson should be banned from fighting for that cannabilism display he put on. I agree that Lewis will spank Tyson but, in the end, Tyson will get frustrated and try to bite Lewis in a bear hug. Why...because he is stupid...that's why.
With all the stupid judges abound, boxing has become a joke. I doubt Holyfield would agree because he always gets the benefit of the doubt just like that fight the other night and the first Lewis-Holyfield fight.
I used to love boxing...now something always stinks.
