Lennox Lewis vs Razor Ruddock

Lennox Lewis vs Razor Ruddock was billed as ‘the fight for the right’.   The winner would go on to have a shot at the world title.  Lewis was classed as the underdog, who had a chance if he could manage to avoid the big punches from Ruddock.  He was expected to try to outbox Ruddock and probably aim to win on a points decision.
