Lewis was making the 4th defence of his WBC world heavyweight title at Wembley Arena in London in front of approximately 7,000 fans, entering the ring as 5 1/2 / 1 favourite and sporting a 25-0 record compared to McCall's 24-5.
In the 2nd round, McCall found Lewis's chin with a heavy right hand that dropped the 6ft 5 Inch champion. Lewis was up at the count of six but stumbled into referee Jose Guadalupe Garcia. The referee stopped the fight immediately. Lewis contested the stoppage, saying he was fine to continue but, he was very unsteady on his feet and would have been a sitting duck for McCall.
