I am amazed at how some people here in RSB fall for the media Hype
(Especially in this one).

1. Many Boxing experts in the media (not RSB), labeled Grant "The Next Great
Heavyweight" and 'The Only Legitimate Heavyweight contender.
 However, in their next breath they said "Grant will get Ko'd early."
-Go figure?  Grant never showed much to be given that label, and if he is
sooo good why did not give him much of a chance at winning?

Basically,
Michael Grant was a cleaver marketing creation by HBO. They hyped him up
sooo much that now everyone has elevated Lewis (an HBO fighter) because he
disposed of him so early.  It has worked, because everyone is scratching
their heads wondering "who can beat Lewis?"

I don't think Lewis is unbeatable.

I say Lewis is beaten within the year.

I hate to say this, but I see Tyson clubbing Lewis into submission...

I have never been a Tyson fan, and would be the first to say he is washed
up.  However, I give both Tyson and Tua good chances at Beating Lennox...
At least more of a chance than Grant.  I call it the McCall factor....

Tua has a decent chance. I wouldn't pick him, but he can knock out anyone, and
I don't think Lewis could knock him out.
