Possibly the greatest boxer Britain has produced. Born Gershon Mendeloff, The Kid fought 238 times from 1909 to 1929 – and in pretty much every weight division, writes Mike Lockley.

Lewis was successful in America where he and arch-rival Jack Britton took it in turns to take possession of the title belt.

They met an incredible 20 times, the pair even played cards together before contests.
