Lennox Lewis is undoubtedly one of the greatest heavyweights of all-time and fantasy match-ups between the past and present often pop on boxing pages and forums.
And Carl Froch was asked by a fan who would win between Lewis and Fury.
Speaking on his YouTube channel, Froch On Fighting, he said:
“Lennox Lewis. And the reason I was hesitant is because Fury’s obviously big enough, and skilful enough, and light enough on his feet with fast enough combinations to give anybody a hard fight.
But I think Lennox Lewis – especially the prime Lewis that smashed Andrew Galota down to the floor, rematched Hasim Rahman after getting chinned and was in there with the best of the best.”
“Maybe he got a couple of opponents just past their best, Mike Tyson just on the slide. But Lewis has got a far better resume. He’s an all-time great, if not the great from Britain. Unified heavyweight champion.
And like I said last week, Tyson Fury, you look at his resume, okay he’s a brilliant fighter and potentially one of the best especially if he beats Usyk and gets a fight with Anthony Joshua. But at the minute, looking at the record, Lewis beats Tyson Fury.”
Froch went on to explain exactly what he believes happens in a fantasy fight between the two heavyweights, he continued:
“If he doesn’t knock him out, he dominates him with combination punches. Too strong. Too big. Puts him on his back foot and hurts him and gets him beat up for a points decision. I think Tyson Fury would be in survival mode, boxing on his back foot trying to out-hustle him. Lewis would close the range using his size and strength and belt him with that big right hand.”
