Lennox is one of the most overrated Heavyweights of all time. He ducked fighters in their prime...held the Heavyweight division hostage while he figured out who he wanted to fight and when...the only legit/good heavyweight he fought was Evander Holyfield and contrary to "popular opinion" he lost their second fight clearly....but was GIVEN the decision because of the bogus out cry coming out of their first fight. I could care less whether he is gay or straight...he was not the "icon" some are making him out to be....get a grip people!

Bitter Americans wont accept Lewis as a champ. He was the best heavy weight in history. Beat all challengers, never ducked any of them, beat them in their own back yard where everyone knows you have to knock a yank out to win because you never get a verdict otherwise.
