The return of "Six Heads" Lewis (22-2-2) to boxing ended after just four rounds due to a head butt from a "Head First-Fist Later" rushing National Champion "Deadly" Denny Dalton (13-5-1) at the Cliff Anderson Sports Hall in Georgetown, Guyana. The ringside Doctor Carl Max-Hanoman ordered the fight be stopped after examining the former champion who suffered a deep gash over his left eye late in the fourth round.
Lewis was taking charge of the fight up to the stoppage, but not without some scary moments after being rocked by the power punching Dalton. Press scorers gave Lewis three of the four rounds after the former Champ landed cleaner shots from several combinations, while Dalton concentrated on landing "Deadly" right hands in search of a KO.
Lewis, popularly known at home as the "Albouystown Cyclone" but worldwide as "Six Heads" faced not only "Deadly" Dalton, but also a sports hall packed with Dalton Fans who heckled at the Former WBA welterweight boss and cheered every move of the former WBF world title contender, even when he used dirty rough house tactics. Lewis responded by using angles and his awkward style to counter punch the agressive Dalton, but was sent to the canvas twice, once from a slip and another from a push-ruled a knockdown by controversial referee Ian Jardine.
The referee's poor performance gave Dalton a chance to bully Lewis, hitting him behind his head and wrestling him to the ropes in order to land shots on several occasions. However, Lewis was even to the task and absorbed the best of Dalton's power punches whenever it manage to connect and landed almost all of his own at will.
Many ringside pundits predicted a "Six-Heads" KO in another two rounds if the fights had continued, quite in contrast with Dalton fans who celebrated after the Guyana Boxing Board officials declared the fight a draw. The two are expected to meet in a return bout on December 26 in the same arena.
After the fight Lewis said he felt like his old-self in the ring but was uncomfortable with Dalton's dirty tactics. He is however eager for a return bout and plans to be back in the top ratings soon.
