Mr Lewis is best known for working with six boxing world champions including Jeff Fenech and Kostya Tszyu.
According to CoreLogic records, the property became solely owned by Ms Rojas in February 2017 after previously being jointly owned by her and Mr Lewis.
Sitting on 441sqm, the Federation house had been the home of the couple since 2007 after they paid $955,000 for it.
The renovated gem features a living and dining area overlooking a lap pool and a two-car garage. There is also a large terrace at the rear with a pizza oven, while a studio is located above the garage.
The interiors are a mix of modern and character charm, with original decorative ceilings and fireplaces remaining in tact.
Other features include ducted airconditioning, four-bedrooms with built-in wardrobes and a luxury Caesarstone island kitchen with Smeg gas stove.
The property occupies a prime address with Enmore Park located across the road and the villages of Newtown, St Peters, Enmore and Marrickville are all within walking distance.
Regarded as boxing royalty, Mr Lewis was inducted into the International Boxing Hall of Fame in 2017 and also has a Medal of the Order of Australia. He has even worked as a trainer for a number of Rugby League outfits including the national Kangaroos team.
With a $2.8 million price guide, the house has a chance to become the highest sale ever recorded on Llewellyn St, according to CoreLogic. The current top sale stands at $1.625 million and was set by 32 Llewellyn St in 206.
