Lennox Lewis ready for Mike Tyson rematch for $100 m

Former World heavyweight champion Lennox Lewis says he is ready for a rematch against Mike Tyson. 

53-year-old British boxer wants $100 m, as he is ready to return to ring.

Well you know, I told people that I’d take my pyjamas off for a 100 mill (£76m)” Lewis told Daily Mail

“So if you’re serious – come with it baby, show me the paper.

“I looked at Tyson’s history, he’s coming from the same history that I’m coming from and he spent some time in incarceration.

“While he was in incarceration I’m still out there fighting and training hard, he didn’t have that in there so when he came out it was like training again doing what he knows not what he loves, that’s going to make him some money – that’s going to put some food on the table.

I look at old time fighters and say, what made them stay in boxing so long, that’s the only thing they knew.

“They’re not going to be no singer or dancer or whatever they only know boxing and this is where they get their money from so that’s what forces them back into the ring.” he added.

Lewis and Tyson last met in 2002, when Lennox beat Mike after 8 rounds.
