Lennox Lewis answered all doubts about his dedication, skill and power in his last two fights.  First, Lewis responded to his embarrassing knockout defeat by Rahman by knocking him out in their rematch.  Then he convincingly dominated and KO'd Tyson, in the ultimate grudge match.  Granted, Tyson was well past his prime, but with Lewis' known weak chin and Tyson's still devastating power, it was still a very dangerous match for Lewis.  Now, Lewis has two options: 1) retire or 2) have a warm up match before facing Wladimir Klitschko, the only remaining fighter in the entire Heavyweight division who has any chance beating Lewis.
