Lennox Lewis is a retired heavyweight world champion boxer. Before he turned professional, Lewis won gold in the super-heavyweight category for Canada at the Olympics.
Lennox Lewis was born on September 2, 1965, and is 53 years old. He’s 1.96 meters tall and has dual British/Canadian citizenship.
The boxer was born in London, but he moved with his family to Canada at the age of 12. He was very athletic at school, playing basketball, soccer and Canadian football.
At the age of 18, he represented Canada at the Olympics, making it to the super-heavyweight boxing quarterfinals.
He delayed turning professional in an attempt to win a gold medal and so was able to compete and win at the 1988 Olympics. After winning his medal, he returned to the UK and started to train as a professional boxer.
Lewis Lennox got married to a former runner-up of the Miss Jamaica contest, Violent Chang in 2005.
The couple has four children – Leviah Lewis, Leya Lewis, Landon Lewis, Ling Lewis –and they all live in Miami Beach.
While it has circulated in some quarters that the boxer is gay and has been paying his partner to keep their affair a secret, the rumor has not been substantiated in any way.
To the best of our knowledge, he’s straight and has been having a good life with his wife and kids.
In 1983, Lewis made the decision to become a boxer and he started with amateur boxing.
His first gold medal for boxing was won at the junior world championship in that same year.
In the following year (1984), he attended the Summer Olympics in Los Angeles, representing Canada. But then, he lost the quarter-final match to Tyrell Biggs.
Lennox remained in amateur boxing for four years, with the hope that in the 1988 Olympics, he would win a gold medal.
The Commonwealth Games of 1986 was when he won his next gold medal.
At Seoul during the Summer Olympics of 1988, he won another gold medal, hence achieving the goal that made him delay his professional career.
His career in amateur boxing ended with 82 matches with him winning 75 matches; 58 were by knockout and he lost 7 games.
After his Olympic win, Lewis moved back to England in an attempt to start a career as a professional boxer.
His professional boxing career began with a lot of successful fights and in 1990, he went ahead to win the title of European heavyweight after defeating Jean Maurice Chanet of France.
In 1991, he defeated Gary Mason who until that time was undefeated. The next year (1992), he triumphed over Derek Williams and won the titles held by both men.
The most memorable win of his career occurred on the 31st of October 1992 in a WBC fight against Canadian heavyweight Donovan ‘Razor’ Ruddock, the fight lasted just the first two rounds.
This match was what proved his competence as one of the best heavyweights in the world; he lost this title to Oliver McCall two years after.
However, Lennox Lewis got the opportunity to reclaim his title in 1997 in a match that has been categorized in the history of boxing as one of the weirdest fights.
McCall refused to fight after the third round, granting Lewis the title by default.
On the 8th of June in 2002, Lewis defeated Mike Tyson and once again proved himself as a great boxer.
Then, the match was the highest-grossing event to have ever happened in the history of pay-per-view.
Lewis Lennox retired from boxing in 2004 with a total of 44 fights to his name. He won 41 of these fights, 32 of which were knockouts.
The man only lost 2 fights; one was a draw. While in retirement, he worked for HBO as a boxing analyst between 2006 and 2010.
He is considered one of the greatest boxers of all time, breaking and setting records, some of which have not been broken by any other boxer.
