Lennox Lewis Bibliography
Lennox Claudius Lewis, CM, CBE was born 2 September 1965 and is a former professional boxer who competed from 1989 to 2003. He was a three-time heavyweight world champion, having also held the lineal championship, and remains the last undisputed heavyweight champion. He holds dual British and Canadian citizenship; as an amateur he represented Canada at the 1988 Olympics, winning a gold medal in the super-heavyweight division after defeating future world champion Riddick Bowe in the final.
In his first three years as a professional, he would win several regional championships, including the European, British, and Commonwealth heavyweight titles. After winning his first 21 fights, he defeated Donovan Ruddock in 1992 to take over the number one position in the WBC rankings. The following year, he was awarded the WBC title due to Riddick Bowe refusing to fight him. Three defences of the title were made before a loss to Oliver McCall in 1994, but he avenged the loss in a 1997 rematch, to win back the now-vacant WBC title.
A further four defences were made, during which he won the lineal championship by defeating Shannon Briggs in 1998. Two fights against Evander Holyfield in 1999 (the first of which ended in a controversial draw) saw Lewis become undisputed heavyweight champion by unifying his WBC title with Holyfield's WBA and IBF titles, as well as the vacant IBO title. In 2000, the WBA stripped Lewis of their title when he opted to face Michael Grant instead of mandatory challenger John Ruiz. He was also forced to vacate the IBF title in 2002 after refusing to face mandatory challenger Chris Byrd.
Another upset occurred in 2001 when he was knocked out by Hasim Rahman, but this defeat was avenged later in the year. In 2002, he defeated Mike Tyson in one of the most highly anticipated fights in boxing history. Prior to the event, he was awarded the The Ring magazine title, which had been vacant since the late 1980s and was last held by Mike Tyson. In what would be his final fight, in 2003, he defeated Vitali Klitschko in a brutal encounter. He would vacate his remaining titles and retire from boxing in 2004.
He often referred to himself as "the pugilist specialist." During his boxing prime he was 6 feet 5 inches (196 centimetres) tall, with an 84-inch (213 cm) reach, and weighed about 245 pounds (111 kg). He is regarded by many as one of the greatest heavyweight boxers of all time, and also one of the greatest British fighters of all time. In 1999 he was named Fighter of the Year by the Boxing Writers Association of America, and won the BBC Sports Personality of the Year.
