LENNOX LEWIS vs. DAVID TUA (HBO) 

Description : Here we have an original full-size HBO boxing pay-per-view poster, billed as "Royal Rampage" for the battle between reigning & defending champion Lennox Lewis vs. David Tua, for the WBC, IBF, IBO and Lineal Heavyweight championships held at the Mandalay Bay Las Vegas.

After becoming the Undisputed Heavyweight Champion in 1999, Lennox Lewis successfully defended his crown twice in easy 2nd round knockout victories over Michael Grant and Francois Botha. Following his victory over Botha, Lewis quickly set his sights on mandatory challenger David Tua, who was ranked number one by both the WBC and IBF. Tua came into the fight sporting an impressive 37–1 record, with victories over future Heavyweight champions John Ruiz, Oleg Maskaev and Hasim Rahman and his only loss coming against undefeated prospect Ike Ibeabuchi by unanimous decision. Though he came into the fight as a 3–1 underdog, Tua was confident he could defeat Lewis, calling him a "lazy fighter" while also stating "He tends to get tired after two or three rounds. "He gets vulnerable. His chin is very suspect. The only way to win is to knock Lennox Lewis out"

Unlike Lewis' previous two fights which did not make it past the second round, this fight went the full 12 rounds. Though Lewis was unable to gain a knockdown over Tua, he nevertheless was able to control almost the entire fight. Lewis out-punched Tua 674 to 413 while out-landing him 300 to 110 en route to a lopsided unanimous decision. All three judges ruled in favor of Lewis with scores of 119–109, 118–110 and 117–111.
