The kicker is Lewis has between 100-150 million in the bank, Bowe is bankrupt, hell he was signing autographs at a flea market....

I'm not necessarily saying the extra $30-40 million from the potential Lewis fights would have made a difference, some guys are just poor with money but damn that's no way for a former HW champ to exist, what is it with boxers and money? Tyson, Holyfield, Bowe, Louis, Hearns, Eubank, Armstrong.....
