At 54, the last undisputed boxing champion of the world Lennox Lewis is convinced that he still can be one of the best in the division.
16 years after his last bout – win over Vitali Klitschko, the Brit told TMZ he would “give a run for their money” to a lot of fighters these days.
“Even right now, I’d give a lot of guys a run for their money right now. I’ve still got that heavyweight focus, heavyweight mind. I dissect fights. I know what is needed of the other person to be successful, so I know what I’d have to do to be successful against these guys. It wouldn’t be easy. I’ll tell you that right now. These guys are bigger, stronger, but as far as boxing talent, they’re still learning. even for me, when I retired, I was still learning. You never stop learning as a champion.”
And how would a prime Lennox do against prime Deontay Wilder?
“Make sure I don’t get hit and hit him before he hits me. We knock out people. So, anytime we launch our right hands, it ain’t coming back. So, if we hit each other at the same time we both go.”
