Lewis was still hinting at retirement, even in the Link Bremem tried to use as proof. In fact it just proves Lewis had no more hunger. What fighter even mentions retirement before and after fighting someone but is still truly interested in it?
"I want the rematch," Lewis said, speaking to the media on a conference call from New York. "I enjoyed that fight. It was just a fight. We went at it. You have to play dollars and cents but I'm opting more for the rematch."

I've proven Lewis was talking about retiring before and after Beating Vittles. How are you making out finding anyone associated with the fight saying a thumb caused the cut and Lewis should have been DQ' d? Yeah, that's what I thought...nada!!

No sound on this PC, but does it mean he was planning to fight Johnson and when it fell through he rather retired as fighting Vitali instead?!

No... Lewis said he was planning to fight johnson after having a year off after the tyson fight. But with only 10days to the fight he finds out Vitali payed johnson to step aside saying he's been training for two years and will beat lewis,after he promised to give johnson a crack at the title...

Unfortunately for Quitali he underestimated the strength of a shot lewis and got his shit pushed in and half his face ripped off.. Que an angry vitali running around the ring crying like a little girl , plans in tatters and out of pocket ..

Well, Vitali did throw a tantrum like a spoiled kid after the fight. What Lennox is qouted for (no sound either) aint clever either.

He left off the part about holding the WBC belt hostage and waiting to see him Johnson could somehow beat Vitali and then he retired. Had Johnson beat Vitali do you really think Lennox wouldn't have fought him?

Lennox was hoping Vitali would lose so he could say "yeah, see the guy isn't any good and I will fight Johnson now since he beat Vitali"

Vitali wins and Lennox instead said "Yeah, forget this shit I am going to retire"
