Lennox Lewis was recently pictured all smiles at The White House next to Donald J. Trump as the United States President announced the posthumous pardoning of fellow heavyweight great Jack Johnson.
The former undisputed top division ruler visited the President for a very serious matter after campaigning for Johnson’s pardon alongside Hollywood actor Sylvester Stallone and current WBC heavyweight title holder Deontay Wilder.

In a lighter moment, a boxing fan via social media spotted an awkward moment between Trump and Lewis as the now retired legend reached in for a handshake.
After greeting Stallone with the motion, Lewis comically reached in as Trump inadvertently moved away, leaving ‘The Pugilist Specialist’ pied off.
Always one to take things in good jest, Lewis shared the clip on his own verified accounts so followers could enjoy what was a classic moment.
