Lewis finally gets his rematch
After months of haggling, the heavyweight title unification rematch between Lennox Lewis and Evander Holyfield is finally set, according to a spokesman for promoter Don King. "The fight is a go for 13 November," said Greg Fritz, of Don King Productions. Panos Eliades, Lewis' promoter, said virtually the same thing Friday in London, but added then that a ticket allocation had to be worked out.
The official announcement will be made at a news conference Tuesday. The fight will be held at the Thomas and Mack center on the University of Nevada-Las Vegas campus, and will be the feature attraction of a multifight card to be run by King and casino operator Park Place Entertainment. Holyfield and Lewis fought to a controversial draw on 13 March in a fight many ringsiders felt was won by Lewis. Each fighter is expected to make about $15m for the bout.
