Lewis was in charge of a super club known as Talk of the Town, where world-famous musician like Frank Sinatra performed in the 1960s and a girl group called the Nolans performed their first live show.
After a while in the Entertainment industry, he got a taste for business and took over his father’s restaurant before selling it for a whopping £30 million.
He used the money to invest in currency trading and was named the Boxer due to his wild success and power in the investment ring.
One particular investment on Black Wednesday in September 1992 helped him to be super rich, as he successfully bet on the pound crashing out of the European Exchange rate as Britain tried to align it with other Euro countries.
Lewis became a billionaire overnight, and his financial method worked over the years. Lewis founded the Bahamas-based investment firm Tavistock Group, which he made one of the most dominant private equity firms in the World.

The Yacht is also used for entertainment, as he used it to host the whole Tottenham squad in 2013 during their tour in the Bahamas.
Joe Lewis also uses it as a floating office and the home of different private art collections, which are among the most expensive in the World.
These art collections were made by artists like Pablo Picasso, Henri Matisse, and Francis Bacon. The Art Collections are worth £777 million.
