Lennox Lewis' Best Performance?

He had so many great performances and could change his style depending on the opponent. He got rid of Andrew Golota, Michael Grant, Razor Ruddock, and Francis Botha in a hurry. He looked sensational against Tommy Morrison, Mike Tyson, David Tua, Evander Holyfield and others. But I was impressed by his fight with Ray Mercer. Lewis had to dig deep to pull off that victory. In his last fight against Vitali, Lewis wasn't his best but fought an impressive street fight.

In your opinion, what was his best performance in the ring?

I'd say it was his showdown with Mike Tyson. In that fight, Lennox showed a lot of his talent. He went toe to toe with Mike in the first round and injured him. He then showed his technical skills by outboxing him from the distance. He fought a damn near perfect fight. Lennox has a lot of impressive performances on his record though.

The Tyson fight was impressive, indeed. It was also much easier for Lewis than it should have been. Had Tyson been up to par, Lewis would have been taken out, imo.

Lewis showed some real grit in the slugfest with Ray Mercer. They were like two hungry dogs fighting over a sandwich. The Mercer fight was one of those moments when none of your skills will work on your opponent; you have to dig down and just fight. Lewis showed he could hang tough in a grueling war. He proved it again in his last fight against Klitskcho.

The Tommy Morrison fight. That's when Lewis became the excellence of execution. Emmanuel Steward's training had paid off by that point.
