CANASTOTA, N.Y. (AP) - Three-time heavyweight champion Lennox
Lewis is among the latest class inducted into the International Boxing Hall of Fame.
He's joined American bantamweight champion Orlando Canizales and
South African junior lightweight champion Brian Mitchell.
The three boxers will be inducted Sunday. They were voted in by members of the Boxing Writers Association and a panel of international boxing historians.
Lewis retired in 2003 with a record of 41-2-1, including 32 KOs, and enters the hall in his first year of eligibility. Canizales retired in 1999 with a record of 50-5-1.
Mitchell, the first South African boxer to be inducted into the hall in Canastota, N.Y., finished his career 45-1-3 with 21 KOs.
