He had only arrived in Tenerife four days earlier and it was thought that he was staying at the Playa Real Hotel in Costa Adeje.
Friends have set up a GoFundMe page to pay the costs of funeral arrangements, medical costs and repatriation.
One of the fundraisers wrote: & # 39; Liam / Michael was a very special person for many people, he was too young and innocent to leave us this way. We'll miss him. & # 39;
A spokesperson for the Spanish national police in Tenerife, who was only made public yesterday with the arrests, said: & # 39; The national police have arrested two foreign men aged 29 and 30 as the suspected authors of a murder case in Arona.
& # 39; During a fight, the victim was attacked on the floor with violent blows that eventually led to his death.
& # 39; The incident occurred in the early hours after a row outside a nightlife venue. & # 39;
One of the arrests was revealed on the spot immediately after the attack, and the second happened a few hours later, the spokesperson added: & The prisoners were taken to court and a judge ordered their pre-trial detention the prison. & # 39;

Mr. Lewis's parents, Julie Lewis and Patrick Boland, flew to Tenerife before he died and they are still thought to be on the island.
Mrs. Hughes said after the news about his death: “He didn't have a bad bone in his body. He was always the person who stepped back and walked away. It is a total waste of life. & # 39;
Dozens of people paid tribute to Mr. Lewis, who moved to London two years ago after receiving a scholarship from construction company Brown & Carroll.

While another said: & # 39; So tragic. He was a great guy. The short time I knew him. Not a bad bone in him. & # 39;
