  Facts  

Lennox is one of only two heavyweight champions (Rocky Marciano) to have defeated every opponent he's ever faced as he scored KO wins in rematches over the two men who defeated him - Oliver McCall and Hasim Rahman.

The Lennox Lewis vs. Frank Bruno fight in October 1993 marked the first time that two British-born boxers had fought for the world heavyweight title.

Lewis vs. Tyson (2002) was the highest-grossing event in pay-per-view history, generating $106.9 million from 1.95 million buys in the U.S., until it was surpassed by De La Hoya-Mayweather in 2007.
