    Lennox is just kidding he'll never come back. He's a real champion When he says he's retired he STAYS retired.
    He's a very wealthy, happy family man, he's no reason to come back. Unlike some that cannot stay away Huh Floyd lol

    He was exceptional, if he'd kept himself in top shape all these years then it's not too crazy to imagine him still being at a moderately good gatekeeper standard. But as it happens he let himself go quite a bit, and it's preposterous to imagine him being competitive against any kind of halfway serious current contender.

    I believe him but someone needs to tell Lennox that just because the mind is willing doesnt mean the body is able.

    There is no one on this planet with a bigger ego than Lennox Lewis.

    No one. Zilch.

    I don't know how well he would do with today's lot at this age/weight etc. But I do know that I would still pay money to see a rematch between him and Frank Bruno. I bet those two could still put on a great show even today.

    Wasn't that due to the absurd padding some of which was removed?

    His high ring IQ might be able to get him past a few guys, but old is old, and like Lewis, father time has beaten everyone he ever faced.

    If he came back and beat Bryant Jennings and then looked like dog **** against Christina Hammer and Travis ''Tomato Can'' Kauffman, then you can bet your bottom dollar on Delusional D Squad hyping him up the greatest thing since sliced bread.
