LENNOX READY TO RUMBLE

      LENNOX LEWIS last night moved closer to a comeback that will divide
boxing when he admitted he wanted to barge Danny Williams out of the way and
fight Vitali Klitschko himself during their heavyweight title fight in the
early hours of yesterday morning.

      Lewis watched from a television gantry as Klitschko retained his WBC
title by pounding brave Williams to a brutally one-sided eighth-round
stoppage in Las Vegas.

      Then the former champion, who retired 18 months ago, confessed he was
edging closer to being lured back into the ring by the prospect of a massive
payday for a rematch with Klitschko. "These kinds of fights do tempt me to
think about coming back because when I see the weaknesses Vitali has, I know
I can beat him," said Lewis, 38.

      "I felt like jumping in the ring and saying 'Danny, sit down mate, let
me sort this out for you. Let me show you how it's done'. I'm nine months
away from being fighting fit and watching the fight unfold last night
stirred something inside me. It showed Klitschko's vulnerability."

      Lewis is still irritated by the perception that he would have lost
against Klitschko in June last year in his final fight if the referee had
not come to his rescue by ruling Klitschko was too badly cut to continue.

      Klitschko, who knows a rematch with Lewis is the most lucrative fight
out there, is thirsting to avenge what he sees as the injustice of his
defeat to the former champion.

      And heavyweight boxing desperately needs a credible challenger to
Klitschko in a division so dominated by old men and mediocrities.

      Most observers want Lewis, 38, to be smart enough to remain in
retirement. But many of the same observers noted this week that Lewis spoke
about boxing with a wistfulness they had not heard since his savage defeat
of Klitschko.

It's probably just one of those heat of the moment things.  Now that the
fight's history and the week is underway, he'll come back to his senses
and forget the whole thing.  Does good for a media story though...

After living the retired life I would bet that LL is craving the limeligt
again

I bet spending a couple of days in and around Vegas for the HW title fight
"shivered his timbers"

My money is on LL doing a comback fight within the year

And it would be a PPV record breaker for sure

If Lennox comes back he will be knocked out by Klitschko.

This same story seems to come out every few weeks.

I assume you mean "a year" :)

LL never sold a ticket. Tyson v Vit would sell more tomorrow.

A record? Maybe for lowest drawing PPV of all-time. This isnt exactly Tyson
comming back after being in jail for 3 years.

Why do you people pay so much mind to otter miller beer or whatever his
name is, the guy has obviously nothing to do in his pitiful life but to
come up with ignorant remarks just so he can feel important but in
reality he is a nobody. Just ignore him he is just too simple minded to
pay attention to.

Lewis says this after EVERY Klitschko fight.  Keep in mind that even if
he wanted to do it, he will be about 40 by the time this fight actually
happens, and will be even MORE ring rusty than he was in the first
Klitschko fight.

=============================
Every time I read these Lewis comeback stories I just think "Please
Don't".  I applauded Lewis' decision to retire (personally, I think he
should have done it after the Tyson fight) and I hope he has the sense
to avoid the fate of so many other fighters.

As much as people like to think "Lewis will come back in better shape"
or "he always does better in rematches", he will be 40 by the time this
fight ever happens, and even more ring rusty than the first fight.

Savage defeat my ass. Lewis may not be able to write his own name if he
ever goes an actual 12 rounds with Klitschko.

It was a deep cut, but Vit gladly would have continued if he'd been
allowed. I wonder if Lewis would have continued to head***him and rub
his dreads in Vit's eye?
