Why did Lewis avoid Riddick Bowe like the plague? Was he too shook to fight someone his own size with better boxing skills? His win over a 60 year old midget Tyson was pretty unimpressive, and he got heem'd by two nobodies. British boxers are trash.
riddick bowe literally L I T E R A L L Y gave away his belt to not fight him. sucks, it coulda been bowe holyfield level exciting
funny thing is, if bowe had fought lewis and won, he now probably would be considered the best ever. instead he is barely even remembered.
EAST RUTHERFORD, N.J. — Amid all the items to be discovered at the Meadowlands Flea Market on Saturday, past the kettle corn and between the $2 leather belts and the $1 bottles of shampoo, was a two-time heavyweight boxing champion of the world.
Riddick Bowe sat on a folding chair behind a card table that straddled two parking spaces, labeled in chalk as Nos. 264 and 265. Most people sauntered past, holding bargains in a bag or grilled meat on a stick, not recognizing the large man who waited for someone to come see him.
“The champ is here!” Darren Antola, who set up the autograph session, called out, like a carnival barker. “He beat Evander Holyfield two out of three times!”
Two women approached. Bowe always was boxing’s approachable heavyweight, the anti-Mike Tyson, witty and disarming. He called each of the women “sweetheart.”
Remember when heavyweight boxing was fun?
He would have beaten Ali, Foreman, Frazier, Marciano, Liston, Patterson and Larry Holmes. FACTS
Negro, please. When you get sent to the shadow realm by bums like Oliver McCall and Hasim Rahman, you don't deserve to have your name mentioned in the same breath as those greats. Just stop it.
Ali has 5 loses on his record he's shit
Ali lost when he was over the hill. Lewis got heem'd IN HIS PRIME. Twice. And then got beaten into retirement by Klitchko.
This was lazy, don't give a fuck Bowe 5 years past his prime. And Golota was a beast. He was the Gronkowski of boxing at the time.
Maybe one of the biggest cases of wasted potential in boxing. He was just too lazy. If he had the discipline of say, a Bernard Hopkins, he could have reigned for a decade.
Lewis was green against mccall and unfocused against Rahman. He beat everybody he faced. Bowe ducked him
Well no because he couldn't keep running from Lewis like a bitch
Ali would have lost against Henry Cooper if Dundee didn't cheat.
He should just stick with doing shit with Eric Andre
Golota fucked bowe up twice
Lewis beat Golota in the first round
End of story
inb4 americucks cry bowe was out of his "prime" in his 20s
had bowe stayed in the game, maybe the fight would have happened somewhere down the line
without a doubt the best fight that never happened
