And well, you know the rest.
I'll never forget Darkey's words at the end of the fight
"KNOCKED OUT, ROUND 2. THE WORLD HEAVYWEIGHT CHAMPIONSHIP STAYS IN BRITAIN, WITH LENNOX LEWIS!!!"
Really good build up to that one.
Grant really was thought to be the next big thing, and the consensus was that it was a real danger fight for Lennox.
I'll always remember the footage of Grant training in the swimming pool.
Bloody hell Lennox destroyed him though
