by Lennox Lewis
An illustrated memoir from world heavyweight boxing champion Lennox Lewis - the first British-born champion for a century. The book tracks Britain's biggest sporting superstar from the night in Las Vegas in 1999, when he was crowned champion by beating the legendary Evander Holyfield.
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 illustrated book (with images by the Jamaican photographer Blaise Hart) commemorates Lennox in his own words since he became a champion. "Lennox" tracks Britain's biggest sporting superstar from the night in Las Vegas in 1999, when he was crowned champion by beating the legendary Evander Holyfield. Two colossal championship years saw Lennox reach the depths of sporting disappointment when he was unexpectedly KO'd by the journeyman Hasim Rahman, before his redemptive fourth-round victory over Rahman in November 2001.
