Lewis, the WBC No1 contender and McCall, the WBC No2 met at The Hilton Hotel in Las Vegas, Nevada with the vacant WBC world heavyweight title on the line. The fight would go on to be remembered as one of the most bizarre in boxing history as McCall appeared to have a mental breakdown during the bout.

Referee Mills Lane stopped the fight at 0:55 of the 5th round.

Promoter Dino Duva said afterwards "Don King should have never made him available to fight. He was in no condition to mentally or physically fight. We tried six weeks ago to get Don to replace him."
