I think he would have beat Bowe, and Bowe ducked him knowing that he couldn't beat him. He lost to Lewis as an amateur and chose to forfeit one of his titles rather than fight Lewis.

Golota was KO'd in one round by Lewis only one year after the Bowe DQ loss. Even a pre-Bowe Golota loses by KO to Lewis.

Not sure about a prime Tyson. If Tyson could get on the inside I think he wins. I would rather have seen a prime Tyson vs. Bowe.

I think he beats Sanders, Byrd, and 90's Foreman as well.

The one fighter outisde of Tyson who I think could have beaten Lewis in his prime is Ike Ibeabuchi.

Also, remember that Lewis was avoided by everyone for a long time, even Tyson's trainers feared Lewis. Reason being is that Lewis fought at a distance and his plan was strong because he throw flatout bombs. Matter of fact, I think he punched harder than Foreman. The only way to beat Lewis was to sidestep that power (have fun with that buddy) and force him to fight outside of his stragety(sp). Oliver McCall and Vitali were the only individuals that could withstand his power and get inside him. By the way, Rahman got lucky, he basically closed his eyes and throw a punch. Speaking of power, watch the rematch, Lewis throw the hardest and loudest punch in Boxing history...Wow!!!
