Lennox Lewis put up a clinic against David Tua in his last fight. Using his height and reach he was able to defeat Tua with ease. David Tua sustained a heavy beating and was well and truly finished by the end of the bout. However, Hasim Rahman poses a whole new challenge, as he’s a knockout artist, and with Lennox’s dodgy chin, you never know.
This fight starts off very slowly both fighters feeling each other out while trying to establish distance. Lennox Lewis looks to lead with his jab, while Hasim Rahman looks to anticipate and come under it in order to launch his own attacks. A very interesting start, as no fighter appears to have the upper edge.
