  • Lennox Lewis Play all

    Lennox Claudius Lewis, CM, CBE, (born 2 September 1965) is a retired boxer and the last undisputed world heavyweight champion. He holds dual British and Canadian citizenship. As an amateur boxer he won a gold medal representing Canada at the 1988 Olympic Games after defeating future heavyweight champion Riddick Bowe in the final. Lewis became undisputed champion by defeating Evander Holyfield, successfully unifiying his WBC title with Holyfield's WBA and IBF titles. With that victory, he was also awarded the vacant IBO title. Lewis is regarded by many as one of the greatest heavyweight boxers of all time, and also as the greatest British fighter of all time.

    Lewis turned professional in 1989, winning his first 21 fights before knocking out Donovan Ruddock in 1992 to take over the number one position in the WBC rankings. He was declared WBC heavyweight champion in December 1992 after Riddick Bowe was stripped of the title. Lewis lost the title to Oliver McCall in 1994, but defeated McCall in a rematch to win the vacant WBC title in 1997. He defended the title four times before becoming the lineal champion when he beat Shannon Briggs by knockout in 1998. Lewis became undisputed champion when he defeated Evander Holyfield in 1999. In 2001 Lewis was knocked out by Hasim Rahman, but again avenged the defeat in a rematch later in the year to regain his titles. After defeating Mike Tyson by knockout in 2002 and stopping Vitali Klitschko in 2003, Lewis retired from boxing in 2004, having beaten every opponent he ever faced in professional competition.

    Lewis is 6 feet 5 inches (196 centimetres) tall and has an 84-inch (213 cm) reach. During his boxing prime, he weighed about 245 pounds (111 kg). Lewis often referred to himself as "the pugilist specialist."

    Konstantin Borisovich "Kostya" Tszyu (/ˈkɒstə ˈzuː/; Russian: Константин (Костя) Борисович Цзю; born 19 September 1969) is a Russian-Australian former professional boxer. He is a four-time light welterweight world champion, having also spent a period of time as the undisputed champion of that division. Tszyu was a good all-around boxer, who relied heavily on accuracy and timing with his shots and carried exceptional punching power, often being regarded as one of the hardest-punching light welterweights in the division's history.

    Tszyu holds notable victories over former world champions Julio César Chávez, Zab Judah and Roger Mayweather. In November 2001 he became the first champion to unify the light welterweight division in over 30 years, and is considered by many in Australia to be a national sports hero. In The Ring magazine's March 2010 issue, Tszyu was ranked as the number one junior welterweight of the 2000s decade. On 7 December 2010, he was inducted into the International Boxing Hall of Fame for the Class of 2011.

  • Julio Cesar Chavez Play all

    Julio César Chávez González (Spanish pronunciation: [ˈxuljo ˈsesaɾ ˈtʃaβes ɣonˈsales]; July 12, 1962), also known as Julio César Chávez Sr., is a Mexican former professional boxer. He is considered by acclamation as the greatest Mexican fighter of all time and one of the greatest boxers of all time.

    Chávez is a six-time world champion in three weight divisions, and for several years was considered the best pound for pound fighter in the world. In a career that spanned over 25 years, Chávez won the WBC super featherweight title in 1984, the WBA and WBC lightweight titles in 1987 and 1988, the WBC light welterweight title in 1989 and 1994, and the IBF light welterweight title in 1990. Chávez was named the 1990 Fighter of the Year by The Ring magazine.

    He holds records for the most successful defenses of world titles (27), most title fight victories (31), most title fights (37), and the second most title defenses won by knockout (21, after Joe Louis with 23). Chávez also has the longest undefeated streak in boxing history: 13 years. Chávez's record was 89–0–1 going into his first official loss to Frankie Randall in 1994, before which he had an 87-fight win streak until his draw with Pernell Whitaker in 1993. Chávez also set the record for the largest attendance for a boxing match, with 132,274 people at the Estadio Azteca for his fight against Greg Haugen in 1993.

    Chávez was known for his outstanding punching power, devastating body attack, remarkably strong chin and the relentless stalking of his opponents. He ranks #24 on ESPN's list of "50 Greatest Boxers of All Time". On December 7, 2010, he was inducted in the prestigious International Boxing Hall of Fame for the Class of 2011. He is the father of prospect Omar Chávez and former middleweight champion Julio César Chávez, Jr.

    Natalia Yurievna Ragozina (Russian: Наталья Юрьевна Рагозина), better known as Natascha Ragosina, is an undefeated retired professional boxer who spent much of her career ranked as the top female super middleweight in the world. Though born in Kazakhstan (formerly a part of the Soviet Union) and currently residing in Germany, she competed professionally for Russia and is of Russian descent. She is the longest reigning WBA female super middleweight champion and WBC female super middleweight champion. At the time of her retirement, she held all major female super middleweight titles and two heavyweight belts:
    IWBF (International Women's Boxing Federation) super middleweight title
    WIBF (Women's International Boxing Federation) super middleweight title
    WIBA (Women's International Boxing Association) super middleweight title
    Global Boxing Union Female super middleweight title
    WBC female super middleweight title
    WBA female super middleweight title
    WIBC super middleweight title
    WIBF (Women's International Boxing Federation) heavyweight title
    WBF (Women's Boxing Federation) heavyweight title
    On March 15, 2008, Ragosina defeated Bermudian Teresa Perozzi to win a record 7 championship belts in a single fight, breaking Giselle Salandy's previous record of 6 belts won in a single fight. However, two weeks later, Salandy - a light middleweight boxer - defeated Karolina Lukasik in a match with 8 titles on the line to regain her record for titles won in a single fight.
    On July 11, 2008, Ragosina won a controversial decision against Conjestina Achieng, winning a close but unanimous decision. One judge awarded Ragosina the fight by a single round, and the other two judges had Ragosina winning by a two round margin. Some boxing observers believe Achieng won the fight. Perhaps due to the controversial decision in the first fight, the two had a rematch on November 28, 2008, which Ragosina won more convincingly.
    On December 19, 2009, Ragosina defeated heavyweight world champion Pamela London by knockout to add two heavyweight championships to her resume - the WIBF Women's International Boxing Federation heavyweight title and the World Boxing Federation heavyweight title. Despite a 65-pound weight disadvantage (Ragosina weighed in at 172, compared to London's 237 pounds), the 5'11" Ragosina used her reach and quickness to knock out London in round 8. This brought Ragosina's record to 22-0, including a 16-0 record in title fights.
