Yeah, I had forgotten all about it until my mate rang me just before it was about to start. So I went and picked him up and rushed up to the local hotel but it wasn't on there. So we put some money on the horses and backed a trifecta

I saw a replay when I got home anyway, so it was all good. Not surprising really...

Judging by the highlights on the news it wasn't a that much of a contest, it looked as though Lewis won quite easily.

I watched the fight at a friends place on Foxtel and to my surprise I enjoyed it (I thought boxing was stupid).

I was hoping Lewis would win but this fight was almost a one-way slugfest. Tyson was never in it really. I almost felt sorry for him. Still, getting US$15 million win or lose isn't too shabby. I'd be happy to get my head beat in for that kind of money.

I saw the match at the Sports Bar In Crown Casino today before going to watch the cats play. I was going for Lewis and had tipped him to win. His height was what won it for him. He was able to successfully keep his distance from Tyson, never letting him get close. When tyson weaved forward attempting to rip, Lewis would clinch and they would get broken up again.

Congratulations Lewis. You proved those silly yanks that Tyson is no GOD. So much for Tyson wanting to "seriously hurt Lewis".

I was surprised to see Tyson complement Lewis at the end.
He called Lewis a "masterful boxer". And Lewis looked like he appreciated the comment. A far cry from the brawl between the two at the press conference last year. I'm guessin a rematch is on the cards!
