A Wall of Security Forms at Lennox Lewis & Mike Tyson’s Showdown

📅On June 8th, 2002 – 18 years ago on this day, we were given this unique, chaotic scene proceeding the mega-anticipated fight between the LINEAL/IBF/WBC Heavyweight Champion of the World 👑🥇🇬🇧Lennox Lewis (39-2-1, 30KO👊), and the former Undisputed, and baddest man on the planet 🇺🇸“Iron” Mike Tyson (49-3-0, 43KO👊👊). For those who remember, the lead-up to the fight was filled with many tension-filled moments, mainly stemming from the Tyson side of the ledger, so personnel at the 🏟️The Pyramid in Memphis, Tennessee felt the need to literally form a wall of security diagonally inside the ring as Hall-of-Fame Ring Announcers 🎙️Michael Buffer and 🎙️Jimmy Lennon Jr. introduced the respective fighters. Lennox Lewis would go on to defend his titles with an emphatic 8th round knockout victory.
