International Boxing Hall of Fame, 2009
The Boxing Writers Association of America named Lewis Fighter of the Year for 1999.
Active 1989 - 2004
Lewis defeated every professional opponent he faced, one of only three World Heavyweight Champions to do so, with Rocky Marciano and Ingemar Johansson being the other two. Gene Tunney and Riddick Bowe avenged their professional defeats, but Tunney had a no-contest, a draw and a number of no-decision fights against boxers he never defeated, and Bowe had a no-contest against Buster Mathis Jr., whom he never defeated.

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 at the time, generating $106.9 million from 1.95 million buys in the U.S. It was surpassed by De La Hoya-Mayweather in 2007.
Lewis's style was not was exciting as contemporaries Mike Tyson and Evander Holyfield but is the only fight to have defeated both legends
Hall of Fame commentator Jim Lampley: "Lennox was by far the best heavyweight I covered. Prime Lennox was too good for Mike and Evander." (Source: BoxingScene.com 2018)
