Lennox Lewis Vs Anthony Joshua: Fans Asked Who Would Win In A Fantasy Boxing Fight

Lennox Lewis Vs Anthony Joshua: Fans Asked Who Would Win In A Fantasy Boxing Fight

Sky Sports sparked a heated debate on social media after asking fans who would win in a dream mega-fight between Lennox Lewis and Anthony Joshua.

Boxing legend Lewis, 54, enjoyed an illustrious career inside the squared circle and remains the last heavyweight to be crowned undisputed champ.

Meanwhile, Joshua has since regained his heavyweight crown after avenging his only defeat to Andy Ruiz Jr last December.

The Sky Sports Boxing Twitter account on Sunday tweeted out a question asking fans who would win if the two Brits met in a fantasy clash.

And a majority of fans have slammed the idea that Brit superstar 'AJ' would have stood any chance against Lewis.

"Lennox Lewis all day long the opposition he faced were unreal," one Twitter user wrote.

While boxing fan Darren Reilly-Smith wrote: "In his prime Lewis but if you mean now... yeah still Lewis."

A third fan argued: "Lewis with ease. Anybody says otherwise is a fool let's be honest."

And Chris Edwards added: "Lewis within 6 rounds and that's been [sic] generous!!"

However, not all fans were in Lewis' corner and there were some that felt 'AJ' was being overlooked due to his loss to Ruiz.

One fan posted: "Joshua because of his stamina."

And another fan added: "aj wins 5th round ko [sic]."

While Twitter account Boxing Kingdom tweeted: "Tough one Sky Sports Boxing. I think AJ's youth and resume would probably give the Brit the edge. Maybe a stoppage between rounds 3-6. We'll go AJ via KO. BK."

A fourth added: "Joshua. Lewis was one of the most boring fighters of all time. Hated watching him."
