Description : Here we have an original official onsite poster for Lennox Lewis vs. Tony 'TNT' Tucker, billed as "Star Spangled Glory", contested on May 8th, 1993 at the Thomas & Mack Center, Las Vegas Nevada USA, for the WBC World Heavyweight Championship.

Like his previous championship fight with Tyson, Tucker was able to go the full 12 rounds with the much younger Lewis but was unable to put together much by way of offense during the bout. Tucker who had previously never been knocked down in 50 fights as a professional was decked twice duting the bout. The first came during the final minute of the 3rd round, Tucker attempted to hit Lewis with a jab with about 40 seconds left, but Lewis was able to dodge it and quickly landed a strong right hook that dropped Tucker to the canvas for the 1st time in his career.

In the 8th round, Tucker seemingly had Lewis in trouble after landing an over 20-punch combination late in the round. However, Lewis would turn the tables on Tucker and dominate the final 25 seconds of the round, landing several power punches that clearly hurt Tucker, who tried in vain to clinch Lewis and survive the remainder of the round. After failing to hold on to Lewis, Tucker backed into the corner with 10 seconds left and was promptly met with a three-punch combination from Lewis, though he was able to grab Lewis and survive the round without being knocked down. As round 9 began, Lewis charged at Tucker and was quickly able to gain a 2nd knockdown after landing a right hook to the side of Tucker's head. Nevertheless, Tucker was able to survive the remainder of the fight, but Lewis was able to pick up a lopsided unanimous decision with scores of 118–111, 117–111 and 116–112 on all 3 judges scorecards & retain his WBC World Heavyweight Title.
