Lewis, regarded as the undisputed world heavyweight champion, even though the WBA stripped him of their trinket just before this fight, faced Michael Grant at Madison Square Garden, New York with a crowd of 17,324 looking on.
Grant came into the fight with an impressive 31-0 record, however, Lewis showed the challenger no respect as he knocked him down three times in the first round and again in the second which prompted referee Arthur Mercante Jr to call a halt at 2:53 of the round.
