When future heavyweight champion Lennox Lewis entered the ring at
Royal Albert Hall in London on November 5, 1989 he was already 4-0 as
a professional with all of his wins coming by way of knockout. His
opponent was Melvin Epps. After a dominating first round by Lewis,
Epps made the decision he could only win by fouling. As a result
referee Tony Walker stopped the fight in the second round and awarded
the fight to Lennox Lewis. Presented here are the actual fight worn
gloves used by Lennox Lewis in this bout against Melvin Epps. The
gloves are eight ounce, red leather which include the original laces.
