2001-07-28 Andrew Lewis tdraw 2 Ricardo Mayorga, Staples Centre, Los Angeles, California, USA - WBA. Referee: Marty Denkin. Storming out from the opening bell, Mayorga (146¾) began to throw rights at the champion who withstood the attacks and countered with southpaw lefts. However, moments into the second round with both fighters coming together there was a clash of heads, Lewis (147) receiving bad cuts over both eyes as well as a swelling on the left optic. Too bad for him to continue, the referee called it off with seven seconds on the clock when ruling it to be a no-decision (technical draw for our purposes) under the Association of Boxing Commission Rules. It was later announced that the pair would have to meet again.
