Lewis Retains title

    Tonight Lennox Lewis came into the ring at the his heaviest fight weight ever, and still came out with a victory. His opponent 6'7 Vitali Klitschko traded punches with Lewis for six grueling rounds and kept the crowd of 15,939 entertained.

   Klitschko was ahead 58-56 on all official scorecards, in the sixth round. Referee Lou Moret stopped the fight because of serious cuts and swelling around Klitschko's left eye. Lewis was then awarded the sixth round victory by technical knockout.

   Klitschko's record fell to 32-2 (31KO) and Lewis moved to 41-2-1(32 KO).
