Lennox Lewis was one of those boxers who reminded us why the sport is sometimes called “the sweet science.” Although he could brawl with the best of them, he also was a technically proficient fighter and dedicated boxing fans admired his style and form. Born in London, Lewis spent much of his childhood in Canada and won a gold medal at the 1988 Olympics while fighting for Canada. But as a pro he carried the British flag through a career that included 41 wins and only two losses. Lewis held multiple heavyweight titles and probably should have picked up a few more after the March 1999 fight against Evander Holyfield, which was declared a draw despite many experts suggesting that Lewis had fought the better fight. But Lewis got his revenge later that year when he defeated Holyfield in Las Vegas. Lewis is also remembered for knocking out Mike Tyson in 2002 in a fight that until recently was the highest-grossing pay-per-view fight of all time. After another big fight and a victory over Vitali Klitschko, Lewis hung up the gloves for good and now works as a boxing commentator for HBO and is involved in other business ventures as a music producer.
Besides being a great fighter, Lennox Lewis also proved to be a shrewd businessman in negotiating his fight deals, so you might need a little help from TSE when it comes to the Lennox Lewis appearance fee negotiations. We are ready to help you save time and money.
