I believe he was born in the Carribbean (sp?) and moved to Canada at a young age and trained here. I think he lived near Toronto for a number of years. Then he moved to England and started speaking with some fake ass British accent and he now calls himself British.

Oh well, I hate boxing anyway. tounge.gif

The fight will more than liekly not happen now, since their little scuffle at the press meeting, the funniest part is that Tyson bit Lewis's Fing leg LMMFAO. They said they were on teh floor and you really couldn't see anything, and Lewis pooped up with no shoe and a no sock, and said that Tyson bit his ass lol. BTW Lewis would kick his ass, Tyson is dried up and really has no chance at being a "respected" boxer anymore. I wouldn';t be surprised if he wasnt banned at his hearing again.

yeah boxing is a complete fix but i hope taht mike tyson gets knocked oot rapid style, and that be the end of him, that man dont deserve to take part in high profile sports after his history with women.

Lewis was born in London and moved to Canada when he was about 9.

Tyson of 10 years ago would have destroyed Lewis of today, depends which Tyson turns up on fight night, one thing a boxer never loses is the power in his punches, he may get older and slower but the power is always there.

Power is useless if he is slow though. If Lennox just dodges his power punches, then Tyson will get tired and then Lennox will take him out slowly but painfully - which looks like a very likely scenario to me.

I wouldn't say it's useless if he's slow but it needs to be combined with a good chin and a good defence, same as being fast is no certainty of being a good fighter, no good being fast if you have no power in your punches, if Lewis had a decent chin he would be an outstanding heavyweight, unfortunately combined with his suspect stamina they are his two major flaws, his major strengths of course are his speed, footwork, jab and of course he does have a fair punch on him, the problem is that Oliver McCall and Hasim Rahman have both proven that all it takes is one shot right on the "sweet" spot of the chin and Lewis can be out, they've both proven that a lucky punch can win the world championship, Tyson probably has the power of those two combined so if he lands anything it could well be over quickly.
