World Light Heavyweight Title
Lewis "had little difficulty ... wagering a careful, systematic battle in which he left few openings for the fast-punching Englishman, Lewis fought his way home to victory in convincing style but his triumph was far from popular with the crowd. Most of the 15,000, who paid $37,712 to see the battle, were swayed by the brave showing made by the fighter from the little isle and vociferously booed the decision". (New York Times)
