Lewis / Klitschko Rematch Planned

Posted in Boxing at 11:06 am by

With a £21 million payday luring him from retirement, former heavyweight champ Lennox Lewis is reportedly set to fight WBC title holder Vitali Klitschko in a rematch of their June 2003 bout. Said contest was halted in Lewis’ favor with Klitschko suffering facial cuts, though the Ukranian challenger was ahead on points at the time.

If Lewis is so easily troubled by suggestions that he was lucky to have kept the belt that night at the Staples Center (I refuse to believe he’s just doing this for the money), perhaps he should grant a rematch to the one fighter he’s never really beaten, Oliver McCall? I’m sure the latter needs the loot just as badly as Lewis.
