Lennox Lewis was born in 1965 in London to Jamaican parents. He moved to Ontario in Canada aged 12 where he excelled in a number of sports at High School. He played to a high standard and his School team won a basketball provincial championship in 1983. The boxing superstar took up boxing in 1978 soon becoming a dominant amateur, and then a world-renowned pro-boxer. Although he was 6 foot 5 inches tall and had an extremely strong punch, his coaches had to strongly encourage him to convert this considerable advantage into aggression.
Lewis won gold in 1983 at the Junior World Championships. A year later in the 1984 Los Angeles Summer Olympics, he represented Canada in the super-heavyweight division. He reached the quarter-finals, losing to Tyrell Biggs, who went on to win gold. Lennox decided to remain an amateur so he could fight at the next Olympics. He achieved his goal and went on to win the Gold medal at the 1998 Olympics, in Seoul. Lewis registered an impressive amateur record winning 85 and losing only 9 bouts, although HBO credits him with a slightly shorter amateur career.
He turned professional straight after winning his Gold Olympic medal. He won several heavyweight championships and became world No 1 in 1992. This was after winning his first 21 pro bouts. He became WBC heavyweight champion in 1992. This is why the Lennix Lewis signature remains in such high demand. In 1999 Lewis defeated Evander Holyfield to become the undisputed heavyweight champion by unifying a number of titles (WBC, WBA, IBF, and IBO).
