yeah I know but despite that they still made it sound like it was set in stone for the rematch to happen, for the record I agree it would have been another beatdown, but why did the rematch not happen when it appears at the time it was all set to happen

You appear to be answering your own question fella.

The fight was already fairly irrelevant by the time it happened, Tyson being so far past his best it was embarrassing. He was still a name but to all exceptthe terminally stupid, he was never going to be anything other than a freak show.

On the off-chance that the first fight had been competitive, the rematch may have come about but even Lewis would have balked at beating up Mike's remains.

There was a contract in place for a rematch. It was brokeen by Tyson for obvious reasons. End of. Least necessary rematch, ever.

Don't think Tyson wanted to finish that fight, let alone have another Smile

Lewis sued Tyson only because he wanted the money a rematch would bring. Tyson obviously didn't fancy another beating for the sake of lining Lewis' pockets

Not the least necessary rematch, but the least necessary match in the world of boxing history.

Tyson was so far past it, as Dave says, that it was never going to be competitive from round 1.

Had they fought in 86-89 then Tyson probably would gave ripped out his heart and broke his own back in the process

Because it didn't need to and would have made no sense.

Even more reason why it'd have been a devastating win for Iron Mike then..........!

Because of the gloves Tyson would have had to bite his heart out. But I'm sure he'd have happily done that, he liked something to chew on.

Lewis would have had no chance because he was rubbish and chinny. Prime mike massacres any heavy in history.

Well except James tillis, just a styles thing really. Oh and tucker and smith, but they just came to survive. So prime mike massacres any heavy in history, except those three.. And maybe a few other spoilers

Hope that's clear.

Yeh i know soldier.

But it shows how meaningless the fight was 15 years after Mikes most potent years.

Lewis was just starting a career at a weight in which Tyson was destroying everyone.

He then fought him a million years later.

Pathetic win which should be put on the other topic of great fighters on a record.

I wince every time I think that Tyson could have castrated Lewis with his teeth beforehand.

If they had fought any time after Manny Steward was looking after Lewis I'm pretty sure that Tyson would have come off second best. Lewis wouldn't have been beaten before he got in the ring as most of Tyson's opponents were and he had the tools to deal with Tyson,probably by knockout.
