Edit: Why is your name TRANSworld?:headscratch:
Ike was a brawler, but he had outstanding cardio for a HW, great hands and power. He would have beat Lewis by taking him into deep waters. No body wanted to fight Ike after he beat Byrd. At that time know one wanted to fight Chris Byrd. Ike took the fight and KO'ed him. That was Byrd's first loss. Ike was the real deal; and he through it all away for a stripper....
Tua and Lewis fought 3 or 4 years after Ike and Tua fought. Tua was on the decline then and struggling with his weight. He was past his time when he fought Lewis.
