13 March on this day...

1999: Lennox Lewis fought Evander Holyfield for the undisputed heavyweight championship of the world at Madison Square Garden. The fight went the distance, but Lewis looked a definite winner. He was stunned when the bout was declared a draw after judge Eugenia Williams scored it 115-113 to Holyfield. New York major Rudi Giuliani called it a “travesty”, Williams admitted she should have scored it a draw after watching a replay and Lewis won the rematch that November in Las Vegas.
