Biography

Alex Stewart competed at the 1984 Olympics, losing in the second round of the heavyweight division, one year before he had won a bronze medal at the 1983 Pan American Games. He turned professional in 1986, and won his first 24 bouts by knockout. This led to a bout against [Evander Holyfield] but Holyfield won by TKO, in a fight for the WBA Continental Americas title. Stewart fought many top heavyweights during his career, including [George Foreman], Mike Tyson, Michael Moorer, and Oleg Maskayev. Stewart fought Foreman in April 1992, losing a narrow majority decision. Stewart fought as a professional until 1999, retiring with a record of 43 wins (40 KOs) and 10 losses (7 by KOs). After retiring from boxing he worked in New York as a driver for a liquor distributor and then in a factory making boxes for the same company.
