Brown's co-trainer denied license

April 30, 1995|By Alan Goldstein | Alan Goldstein,Sun Staff Writer

LANDOVER -- Simon Brown's co-trainer, Carlos "Panama" Lewis, was missing from his corner at USAir Arena last night before his fighter's title bout with junior middleweight champion Vincent Pettway.

Lewis, 49, waited until Friday night to apply for a second's license from the Maryland State Athletic Commission and was denied.

Commission counsel Bruce Spizler, an assistant district attorney, aware that Lewis was under suspension statewide save for Pennsylvania, said Lewis would have to face a future hearing in Maryland to have his case reviewed.

Lewis has not been allowed to work a corner since his license was revoked in New York in June 1983, after he was accused of tampering with the gloves of middleweight Luis Resto in his victory over then-unbeaten Billy Collins Jr.
