Holyfield-Lewis: Was it a fair result?

A draw or a travesty for boxing?

Lennox Lewis thought he was "robbed" of the world title against Evander Holyfield but one of the judges maintains that Holyfield deserved the fight.

Lewis vs Holyfield
Lewis, his promoter and trainer all thought that the British fighter had won the bout by a big margin.

Did Lewis do enough to become the undisputed heavyweight champion of the world or is it just sour grapes from the former Olympic Gold medallist?

Did Holyfield do enough in the fight to get a draw or did his home advantage make the difference?

Or was this just a cynical money making exercise by the promoters to cash in on yet another title fight?

So what do you think - was it a fair result?
