Description : Here we have an original Sportsnetwork main event poster for the for the WBC, IBF, IBO and Lineal Heavyweight Championships between reigning & defending heavyweight champion of the world,Lennox Lewis vs. Francois Botha, billed as "The Homecoming", on July 15, 2000 at the London Docklands Arena.

Like in his previous fight with Grant, Lewis would make short work of Botha. Lewis dominated the duration of the fight landing 24 of his 47 thrown punches while Botha only managed to land nine punches through the entire fight instead opting to take a more defensive approach to the fight. With one minute left in the first round, Lewis staggered Botha with a right hook, but Botha managed to stay on his feet and avoid the knockdown. Lewis attempted to capitalize and pursued Botha aggressively in an attempt to gain a knockdown, but Botha was able to whether Lewis' attack by clinching and survived the 1st round without being knocked down. In the 2nd round, Botha tried to keep his distance from Lewis and was offering very little by way of offense. With about 40 seconds left in the round, Lewis landed a powerful 4 punch combination that knocked Botha halfway out of the ring. Botha crawled back in and was able to get back on his feet but as he was clearly hurt from the exchange, referee Larry O'Connell decided to stop the fight and Lewis was rewarded with his second consecutive 2nd round knockout victory.
