LONDON, October 10. (ITAR-TASS). - Legendary British heavyweight boxer Lennox Lewis is ready to return to the ring for $100 million, the Daily Mail reports.
According to the publication, Russian sponsors offered $50 million to 48-year-old Lewis for a return to the ring while he was watching the fight between Russia’s Alexander Povetkin and Ukraine’s Wladimir Klitschko October 5 in Moscow. The British boxer said he was ready to make a comeback for $100 million. “That is my price tag and it is under discussion,” the boxer said. “I have told them I can be ready in six months and I am in provisional training,” he added.
Daily Mail supposed that Russian promoters wanted to set up a rematch of the fight between Lewis and Vitaly Klitschko in Los Angeles in 2003.
Lewis also said that in case of return he would prefer to fight the younger brother Klitschko, Wladimir. “I beat Vitali so I would like to fight the other brother but we’ll see how it works out,” the boxer added.
