Can someone please fill me in on how this happened.

I'm a friend of Lennox's and trying to figure out
what is going on.  I just heard.

What did Don King say about Lennox...anything???

    All King has said recently about Lewis is that he accepted $4
million to "step aside" and let the Tyson-Seldon fight go ahead as
planned. Now he's announcing a matchup next fall with Holyfield- so
it appears that the suspicions of people here on RSB were right: That
King has NO intentions of having Tyson face Lewis, and that they'll
probably DUMP the WBC belt and "Let Lewis have it", going up for a
vacant title.

I guess that's possible, but it's also possible that he wants to have this
fight while Lewis gets busy planning to dispose of Bowe.  That way, King
has eliminated one of the two biggest opponents to his man, and Mike
doesn't have to fight both of them.

It's possible.

How *what* happened?  

Your subject line isn't particularly descriptive.
