29.07.04 - Former undisputed heavyweight champion Hasim ``The Rock'' Rahman knocked out Terrence Lewis in 43 seconds into the second round Wednesday night. Rahman landed a strong left jab early in the 2nd round, which broke the nose of Lewis and dropped him to the canvas. From the very start of the bout, Rahman clearly had too much power for Lewis, as he backed him up constantly with a strong jab and big right hands.
