Instead of waiting to see if heavyweight Andrew Golota's reputation as a dirty fighter was valid or not, Lennox Lewis quickly took matters into his own hands Saturday night at the Atlantic City Convention Center. As he predicted, Lewis exposed Golota as an overrated challenger with a brutal knockout 1:35 into the first round to defend his World Boxing Council title before a crowd of 13,889.

His day had begun with a private jet flying him in from training at Lake Tahoe. Now, Riddick Bowe was watching the palm trees and urban sprawl of Southern California go by as he rode in a limousine down Hollywood Boulevard.

A blanket of silence engulfs the trees, a thin sheet of ice grips the roads, a few rays of sun illuminate the lonely trails. It might be only a few hours' drive from the glare of Manhattan to Scotrun, Pa., nestled in the mountains known as the Poconos, but it might as well be a trip to another planet. This is Lennox Lewis' world and has been for the last seven weeks.
