2001-04-28 Andrew Lewis w pts 12 Larry Marks, Hammerstein Ballroom, Manhattan, NYC, New York, USA - WBA. Referee: Steve Smoger. Scorecards: 119-109, 120-108, 119-109. Prior to the contest it was felt that Marks (144¼) should not have been sharing the same ring as the champion, but after a left hook to Lewis’ temple that had him floundering around two minutes into the fight there was certainly a reassessment going on. Unfortunately, following that the next 11 rounds failed to live up to the initial excitement, and although Lewis (146½) virtually won all of them, occasionally having Marks in trouble, he was never able to finish the latter off. A proven tough guy, Marks stayed in the fight by clutching and being able to absorb whatever Lewis threw at him.
