Lennox Lewis was one of the biggest stars during his time as a professional boxer. He is especially known for defeating Mike Tyson via Knock Out in the 8th round when the two squared off against each other in June 2002.
The match also had some infamy to its name during the buildup, which included Mike Tyson threatening to ‘eat’ Lewis’ children. Tyson would later go on record to say he regretted ever saying that to Lewis.
Recently, Mike Tyson claimed that his next boxing match will be against Lennox Lewis and didn’t give any details regarding the fact. Now it seems Lewis himself has addressed Mike Tyson’s claim.
While speaking at the Ruiz-Arreola PPV, Lennox Lewis confirmed that he is in talks to have a rematch with Mike Tyson, 19 years after their first bout.
“Not yet, but soon — maybe. We’re talking!”
Tyson had earlier mentioned the fight is supposed to take place in September of this year. With Lewis confirming that the two are in talks, we have to wait and see whether the two will truly face off or not later this year. Fans are eagerly anticipating the match.
