A year ago, Flex Lewis left Las Vegas after suffering the most disappointing loss of his career. Tonight he experienced the opposite end of the spectrum, as the 28-year-old withstood a tough challenge from David Henry to win the 212 Showdown at the Olympia.
Last year, Lewis lost a controversial decision to reigning champ Kevin English after leading the morning prejudging. This year, Lewis didn’t held off Henry in the finals for the biggest win of his professional career.
Henry, the 2008 202 Showdown winner, finishes as the runner-up for the third time. He placed second to English at both the 2009 and 2010 Showdowns.
Eduardo Correa placed third while Jose Raymond (4th), Al Auguste (5th) and Tricky Jackson (6th) rounded out the top six.
