Default Lennox Lewis: "Vitali paid off Kirk Johnson to cancel the fight with me"

Interesting interview with Lennox, just came across this little nugget:

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"

So you believe that Vitali trained for this fight for TWO years and paid Kirk to step aside 10 days before the fight?


BTW Lennox won fair no complaints but to say things like this seems like he is loser.

And yes I would have loved to see rematch.

I really think Lennox feared what he would do to Vitali in a rematch. He didn't want to be responsible for turning somebody into a vegetable, or possibly even killing them.
does Lewis ass taste like chocolate?
