Fight Notes: 

Undefeated WBO Heavyweight Champion Henry Akinwande vacates his title to challenge WBC Champion Lennox Lewis in a battle of Brits, but the fight quickly grows ugly as Akinwande resolves to hold every time Lewis hits him. Referee Mills Lane has to deduct a point from Akinwande as early as the second round and calls time to talk with him and his trainer about it. In the third round, Akinwande makes Lewis touch a glove to the canvas after landing a right hand and pushing the champion's head down; however, Lane has to lecture him once more about holding in the fourth. Finally, after clearly informing Akinwande and his trainer that he will end the fight just as he had the rematch between Evander Holyfield and Mike Tyson two weeks prior, Lane has no choice but to disqualify the challenger for holding in the fifth round.

What a ugly fight.

Mills Lane took control.

DQ is the way out if you want to quit foul.

Lennox Lewis dominated the action and was never in any danger.

Henry Akinwande read the writing on the wall and chose his way to survive and eventually out of the match by fouling.

Henry Akinwande felt Lennox Lewis power early and often and knew Lennox Lewis had a good chance to stop him with brutal punches.

Jarod Killian's picture

That tall motherfucker Akinwande had hep b. How the fuck he was let to fight on was simply ludicrous. That motherfucker was seriously endangering the safety and health of other boxers every time he stepped into the ring. Same with Tommy Morrison that motherfucker had HIV.
