The first illustrated autobiographical book from Lennox Lewis.

Lennox Lewis was born in East London of Jamaican parents but from the age of eight was raised in Canada. Indeed, it was for Canada as an amateur boxer that he won the gold medal at the Seoul Olympics in 1988. Now domiciled in England again, he is the first world heavyweight boxing champion Britain has produced in over a hundred years. This lavishly illustrated book, with images by the Jamaican photographer Blaise Hart, is the first to commemorate Lennox in his own words since he became a champion, and has his full support in terms of the book’s promotion. Only the notorious "Iron Mike" Tyson appears to be left as a credible challenger and this much–anticipated fight could crown an extraordinary sporting career. LENNOX tracks Britain’s biggest sporting superstar from the night in Las Vegas he was crowned champion in 1999 by beating the legendary Evander Holyfield. Two colossal championship years saw Lennox reach the depths of sporting.
