Footnotes

  • Lennox Lewis was born in London in 1965. Raised by his Mother, the ultimate champion in his corner, they moved to Canada when he was 12 and young Lennox excelled at a variety of sports. Fortunately, former amateur boxer Arnie Boehm introduced him to boxing.

    Lennox built a exceptional amateur career, which culminated in becoming an Gold Olympic medalist in Seoul 1988. In so doing he defeated future World Heavyweight Champion Riddick Bowe via a second round TKO.

    Lennox turned professional on June 27th, 1989. In his first paid fight, he defeated Al Malcom with a second round KO. Lennox fought Tony Tucker for the WBC Heavyweight Title on May 8th, 1993. Lennox floored his opponent, going on to win by unanimous decision, after a thrillingly heavy hitting contest in Las Vegas, Nevada. He managed to defend his title twice, but then was unexpectedly KO'd by Oliver McCall on September 24th, 1994. Unabashed and undaunted, he won it back via a fifth round TKO.

    Lewis, "the Lion" as he's known in boxing, faced the best heavyweights, including legendary Mike Tyson, whom he KO'd. Before retiring from boxing, Lewis faced Ukranian Vitali Klitschko. After two thrilling rounds, Lennox roared back from behind, carving out for himself a deep cut on Vitali's brow, winning by a seventh round TKO.

    On February 6th, 2004, he officially announced his retirement from boxing in a London press conference, and joined Rocky Marciano as only the second boxer to retire while still Heavyweight Champion.
