  • Riddick Lamont Bowe (born August 10, 1967) is an American former professional boxer who held the undisputed heavyweight title. As an amateur he represented the United States at the 1988 Summer Olympics, winning a silver medal in the super heavyweight division after losing to Lennox Lewis in the final.After turning professional, Bowe went on to become a two-time world heavyweight champion. In 1992 he defeated Evander Holyfield (who was then unbeaten) to win the undisputed WBA, WBC and IBF titles. He was stripped of the WBC title later that year after refusing to fight archrival Lennox Lewis. In a rematch with Holyfield in 1993, Bowe lost the WBA and IBF titles in what would be his only professional defeat. He later regained a portion of the world heavyweight championship in 1995, defeating Herbie Hide for the WBO title. In doing so he became the first boxer in history to have won the titles of all four major sanctioning bodies—the WBA, WBC, IBF and WBO—and remains the only heavyweight to do so.Bowe retired from the sport in 1996, making a low-key return in 2004, but has been inactive since 2008. In a 2010 article by BoxingScene, Bowe was ranked the 21st greatest heavyweight of all time. In 2015, he was inducted into the International Boxing Hall of Fame. (en)

In 1992 he won the undisputed WBA, WBC, and IBF titles by defeating then-unbeaten former undisputed cruiserweight champion Evander Holyfield. That same year, Bowe was named Fighter of the Year by The Ring and the Boxing Writers' Association of America. Bowe vacated the WBC title later that year in protest, instead of defending the title against their number one contender, Lennox Lewis. This left the undisputed championship fragmented until 1999. In a rematch with Holyfield in 1993, Bowe narrowly lost the WBA and IBF titles in what would be his only professional defeat.He later regained a portion of the world heavyweight championship in 1995, defeating Herbie Hide for the then-fledgling WBO title. In doing so, Bowe became the first boxer in history to win the titles of all four major sanctioning bodies—the WBA, WBC, IBF, and WBO—and remains the only heavyweight to do so. Later that year, Bowe vacated the WBO title in order to fight Holyfield for a third time, and won decisively by being the first boxer to stop Holyfield. 1996 saw Bowe engage in two brutal slugfests with Andrew Golota, both of which ended controversially when Golota repeatedly hit him with low blows.Bowe retired from the sport after the Golota fights, making a low-key return in 2004, but has been inactive since 2008. In a 2010 article by BoxingScene, Bowe was ranked the 21st greatest heavyweight of all time. In 2015, he was inducted into the International Boxing Hall of Fame. (en)
