Later in the press conference, the normally reasonable Grant went into a strange and quavering riff about "truth" and "shining a light on all of you." It was emotional, but not in a particularly good way. "Michael sounded a bit upset there," said Lewis, laughing, as if to say, This might be easier than I thought.
Indeed it was. Lewis was confident he'd have a short night's work if Grant rushed him. The champion recognized, as Steward had, that Grant, for all his size, could not cope with Lewis's counterpunching nor with his power. Lewis and Steward knew that, no matter what the boxers' combined weight, it didn't add up to a close fight. Lewis was just Two Good.
