VITALI KLITSCHKO TO HOLD EXHIBITION FIGHT AGAINST LENNOX LEWIS IN KYIV

Kyiv Mayor Vitali Klitschko, who was crowned the “Eternal World Heavyweight Champion” by the WBC, will again fight former world champion Lennox Lewis as part of the 56th WBC Congress to be held in Kyiv from September 30 to October 5, 2018. “This will be an exhibition fight, which will be held as part of a charity auction. The details of the auction and the format of the bout have not been publicized yet,” reads a report posted on the website of the official fan club of the Klitschko brothers.
A well-known fight between Klitschko and Lewis took place on June 21, 2003. A dramatic bout was stopped by the doctor after the Ukrainian boxer sustained a deep cut above his left eye. Klitschko was ahead 58-56 on the scorecards when the fight was stopped. Lewis defended his champion title thanks to that victory, a rematch was not held, and the Briton soon ended his career.
