LONDON Lennox Lewis, the World Boxing Council heavyweight champion, has rejected a deal to fight Rid**** Bowe for the undisputed title.

"The deal was $21 million for Bowe and a 50-50 split if the final purse went above $32 million," Frank Maloney, who represents Lewis, said Tuesday. Lewis was guaranteed $11 million.

"We declined that, and the Bowe fight won't happen until the summer of 1994," Maloney said.

In a statement released through his manager, Rock Newman, Bowe, the International Boxing Federation and World Boxing Assn. champion, said Lewis is a "pitiful disgrace to the manly art of boxing. . . . Lennox Lewis is a pompous, arrogant, phony British punk who is simply afraid to fight me."
Absolute BULL****!!!!
