Given Lennox's carelessness in the first fight, that was one of the great, maybe the greatest, rematch fight victories I've seen.Watched Lennox Lewis v Rahman II last night.
Against a dude who dealt him a KTFO, Lewis proceeded to jab the fuck out of his face and head, using some of the most powerful jabs I have ever seen.
Lewis wasn't swinging. He wasn't even aggressive. His chin was protected at all times, and he worked to get Rahman in range for punishment. He was totally controlled and clinical.
Within 4 rounds he had Rahman in all sorts of trouble. Cuts on the face, tormented by jabs, and then the combinations came out. Soon he's left Rahman unconscious on the canvas with a sweet one two combination shattering his jaw.
The ultimate boxing performance - disciplined, tactical, powerful and destructive. Utterly one sided ass beating from a master on a mission to set the fucking record straight on some trashtalking punk ass clown.
Marquez fight was abit meh, great performance but Floyd new what he was doing bringing Marquez up. I remember during the fight thinking Marquez would of been able to box with Floyd no worries if he was longer and faster.Floyd Mayweather was spectacular against Corrales, Gatti, and Marquez.
I use to cringe when he went into his "Slappy Calzaghe" mode and the ref's (in his country) would stop fights saying the opponent was taking too much punishment--------all shoe-shine arm punches with little power.......Joe arguably has the most all round unwatchable style of all time.
