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.

Amateur career

Brewster was the 1995 US Heavyweight Champion as an amateur. Additional highlights include:

Professional career

1996-2003: Prospect to Contender

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.

2004-2005: WBO Heavyweight Champion & Title Defenses

On April 10, 2004, Brewster faced Wladimir Klitschko in a fight for the vacant World Boxing Organization championship that had been vacated by Corrie Sanders, who had upset Klitschko by knocking him out in the second round of their fight in 2003, when he decided to challenge Vitali Klitscko for the World Boxing Council title vacated when Lennox Lewis retired.

Brewster was dominated in the early going, knocked down once in the fourth round. In the fifth round, Brewster hurt Klitschko with a left hook that forced the Ukrainian fighter to use the ropes to hold himself up, which resulted in a knockdown. As the round ended, Brewster hit Klitschko with a combination of punches that caused him to go down after the bell sounded. Seeing Klitschko struggle to return to his feet, referee Robert Byrd stopped the fight and awarded a technical knockout victory to Brewster. Klitschko claimed foul play resulted in his defeat but an investigation found nothing.

Brewster, as of April 2015, stands as the last man to defeat Klitscko in the ring.

2006-2007: Liakhovich & Klitschko II

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.

2008-2010: Tail-End of Career

After two tune-up bouts, he was upset by Gbenga Oloukun by an eight round points decision. The following year he was stopped by rising contender Robert Helenius. Brewster was managed by The Simpsons co-creator, professional poker player and philanthropist, Sam Simon.[1]

Retirement

On January 9, 2011, Lamon Brewster officially announced his retirement as a professional boxer.[2][3] 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. He has undergone four unsuccessful surgeries to restore sight in his left eye.[4]
