On 27 June 1995 Lennox Lewis arrived in Dublin ahead of his heavyweight bout with Australia's Justin Fortune at the Point Depot.

RTÉ reporter Tony O'Donoghue spoke to Lennox and his manager Frank Maloney about the fight.

Lennox comments that

One can never tell how easy it's going to be. I basically have to go in there and utilise my talent and let my boxing do the talking.

Frank Maloney speculates on the outcome of a fight between Lennox Lewis and Mike Tyson to find the meanest man on the planet.
