HOLYFIELD-LEWIS SET FOR MARCH 13 GARDEN PARTY
Published November 25, 1998
Evander Holyfield and Lennox Lewis will meet in a heavyweight championship unification bout on March 13 at MSG. The fight will be carried live on TVKO, HBO's PPV arm. A press conference will be held Monday to announce the fight (MSG). Holyfield, the WBA and IBF champion, will receive $20M, while WBC champion Lewis will earn $8-10M (Timothy Smith, N.Y. TIMES. 11/25). In N.Y., Neal Travis writes that following the Holyfield-Lewis unification, "the stage will be set" for Mike Tyson to eventually face the winner, which could "produce the biggest gate ever for a fight, with world revenues of maybe $250 million" (N.Y. POST, 11/25).
