    This fight was not as lopsided as I remembered. I had Lewis winning by just one round.

    Lewis was his own worst enemy in this fight! He didn't go for the kill when he had Holyfield in trouble and his fight "demeanor" didn't help either.

    you can be as generous as can be to Evander and on better than a draw he deserved by making as lopsided an argument as possible. Lewis 2-0 against Evander in my eyes... clearly

    I could not believe they called that a draw, it was one of the worst decisions I had seen, of course I have not seen it in years so maybe it was not as one sided as I remember, but there is no way that was a draw, Lennox Lewis definitely won that fight. Nothing to do with the match, but my niece is friends with one of Evander's sons and I have seen Evander around town although I have never met him.

    The first fight was one of the worst robberies in history...

    the second fight should have went to Holyfield.

    You really think the second fight should have went to Holyfield? Can you watch the fight again and say that with a straight face......better yet find another respectable scorecard(SI/Ring Magazine..hell i even accept ESPN) that reflects what you THINK you saw....you cant

    My scoring of the 1st fight...

    Rd 1.Lewis .. Clearly
    Rd 2.Lewis .. Clearly
    Rd 3.Holyfield .. Even
    Rd 4.Lewis .. Clearly
    Rd 5.Lewis .. Dominent
    Rd 6.Lewis .. Even
    Rd 7.Lewis .. Dominent
    Rd 8.Holyfield .. Even
    Rd 9.Holyfield .. Even
    Rd 10.Holyfield .. Clearly
    Rd 11.Holyfield .. Even

    Lewis 7 RDS Holyfield 5 RDS (Being generous to Holyfield in some of the even rounds esp the 9th!) I only have Holyfield clearly winning 1 round, can't see how anyone could score it a draw.

    I remember Eugenia Williams trying to justify scoring the fifth for Evander by saying she couldn't see Lennox

    So horrific i cant see how holyfield walked out of the building with a draw, i can't see it being any closer then 116-112 for lewis.
