    CHARLES,
    in the minds of present & later reflection, a great (small) HW champion giving rise to the reality of and just how great Ezzard Charles the L-HW was/is, historically!

    Fair or not

    And it seems like the theme of this as designed by Evan, is to associate the fighter with the "kneejerk" response we all have when we think of the fighter, I think that Lewis will probably be more remembered for the KO losses to MCCall and Rahman, than for anything else.

    I personally think of Bowe ducking him as the first thing that comes to mind, but I suspect most will associate the 2 KO losses ahead of anything else.
