Lewis Schedules Fight

World Boxing Council heavyweight champion Lennox Lewis will defend his title against Phil Jackson in May, promoters Main Events said.


The fight will be held on either May 6 or May 14 and will probably take place either in Atlantic City, New Jersey, or Reno, Nevada, Main Events spokesman Mike Boorman said Monday.


Lewis, 23-0, stopped fellow Briton Frank Bruno last October in his most recent fight and decisioned American Tony Tucker, both for the WBC crown.
