Holyfield Lost to Lewis

Fighting in Las Vegas, Atlanta’s Evander Holyfield lost a unanimous decision to Lennox Lewis. The 15-round fight went the distance, but the 37-year-old Holyfield was unable to defeat the younger, taller, and heavier British champion. Lewis’ victory gave him the undisputed world heavyweight boxing championship - a title Holyfield had hoped to regain.
