The second defence of Lewis's WBC world heavyweight title in his second reign took place at Caesars Hotel & Casino in Atlantic City, New Jersey against Polish contender Andrew Golota.

A live gate of 13,889 was in attendance to see the 6-5 favourite Lewis pummel Golota to the canvas twice in the 1st round. The second knockdown signalled the end of the fight with referee Joe Cortez counting out the challenger at 1:35 of the round.

Golota was later fined $5,000 by the New Jersey State Athletic Control Board for taking an injection of the painkiller lidocaine in his right knee shortly before the fight.
