    I remember seeing him on TV all the time leading up to the Spinks-Tyson fight. Then I remember the fight, when Tyson was about ready to walk to the ring and Lewis suddenly showed up outside the locker room complaining about how Tyson was wearing his gloves. Tyson had to go back in and fix the gloves, delaying the entrance for a few minutes. I was thinking "Gee, what a great thing to do for your fighter: Make the opponent even more mad at a time when he was the scariest man on the planet."

    Lewis was a great quote. I always liked his chocolate tuxedo look.
