Question 7

Give first, last, or both names of the boxer who would fit in the blank.

After defeating Lou Savarese on 24 June 2000, Mike Tyson started off his post-bout interview with Jim Gray respectfully invoking the Shahadah. Then he got all Mike Tysoney. Whom, was he calling out in this poetic interview (and who's first name would fill in the blank)? This man would KO Tyson on 8 June 2002.

I'm the best ever. I'm the most brutal and vicious, and most ruthless champion there's ever been. There's no one can stop me. _____ is a conqueror? No, I'm Alexander, he's no Alexander. I'm the best ever. There's never been anybody as ruthless. I'm Sonny Liston, I'm Jack Dempsey. There's no one like me. I'm from their cloth. There's no one that can match me. My style is´╗┐ impetuous, my defense is impregnable, and I'm just ferocious. I want your heart. I want to eat his children. Praise be to Allah.

Lennox Lewis
