History was made at The National Stadium in Cardiff, Wales when Lennox Lewis defended his WBC world heavyweight title against Frank Bruno, the first time that two British born heavyweights had faced off for the heavyweight world title.
The crowd of 25,784 watched as Bruno, a 1-4 underdog made a good start, winning the early rounds behind a ramrod jab. Lewis started to pick things up in the 6th and in the following round caught Bruno with a cracking left hook that took all the fight out of Frank. As Lewis pounded the hapless Bruno with big right hands referee Micky Vann separated the two to warn Lewis for holding. As the action commenced, Lewis continued his bombardment of his fellow countryman until referee Vann jumped in at 1:12 of the 7th round.
The was Lewis's 2nd defence of the WBC world title.
