"Relentless" Lamon Tajuan Brewster (born June 5, 1973 in Indianapolis, Indiana) is a retired American professional heavyweight boxer, former WBO heavyweight champion, and entrepreneur. He won the silver medal as an amateur at the 1995 Pan American Games in Mar del Plata. Brewster founded "Fighting Connection Consulting" in 2011. Brewster turned professional in 1996 and was undefeated for his first three years as a pro until losing decisions to Clifford Etienne and Charles Shufford in 2000. On April 10, 2004, Brewster shockingly knocked out Wladimir Klitschko in the fifth round to win the vacant WBO heavyweight championship in Las Vegas. While Klitschko dominated the fight at first, Brewster survived the onslaught and rallied to knock Klitschko out. Klitschko claimed that he had been drugged, but this claim was never proven. Brewster lost his WBO title by unanimous decision on April 1, 2006 to Sergei Liakhovich from Belarus in an action-packed fight. In an interview following the fight, Brewster said that he could not see with his left eye after the first round. It was later confirmed that he had suffered a detached retina in his left eye and he had to undergo surgery. Lamon Brewster returned to the ring on July 7, 2007, losing his rematch against Wladimir Klitschko after trainer Buddy McGirt stopped the fight after the sixth round. The fight took place in Köln (Cologne), Germany, for the IBF & IBO heavyweight title. On January 9, 2011, Brewster officially announced his retirement as a professional boxer. Brewster cited an eye injury from his last fight with Helenius as the reason for this retirement, further he indicated that he believes that Helenius tampered with his gloves which caused the resulting injury to Brewster.
