1998-09-26 Lennox Lewis w pts 12 Zeljko Mavrovic, Mohegan Sun Casino, Uncasville, Connecticut, USA - WBC. Referee: Frank Cappuccino. Scorecards: 117-111, 119-109, 117-112. Boxing in a laboured fashion the champion found himself unable to stow away the tough Mavrovic (214¼), a former European titleholder, who finished the contest with a cut over the right eye but still standing. Occasionally, Lewis (243) would let the punches go, but unable to move the tough Croatian he often ran out of steam. Lewis’ best punch was the right uppercut, a fact admitted by Mavrovic, and he opened up a cut under the challenger’s chin that would require five stitches. Finishing the fight with both eyes swollen, it was not one of Lewis’ better nights.
