2003-02-08 [[Antonio Margarito]] w rsc 2 [[Andrew Lewis]], Bay Resort & Casino, Las Vegas, Nevada, USA - WBO. Referee: Joe Cortez. Despite making a reasonable start when he punched much harder and faster than the champion, when trying to repeat his earlier successes in the second round Lewis (147) came unstuck. Tearing into Margarito (146½) and letting go several big shots it looked like a shock was on the cards, but Lewis was eventually driven back against the ropes by a fusilade of heavy blows and when he stopped fighting back the referee rescued him on the 2.31 mark.
