That's complete bullshit...his fight with Klitschko was stopped due to a cut from and Lewis was behind on every score card...He was getting worked and boxing writers and anaylists like Burt Sugar, Max Kellerman, Jack Fiske and most others believed Klitschko was on his way to a decisive victory...and then does Lewis stand up like a man and give Klitschko a rematch? No, he retires like a coward.

Not only that but Lewis was a lazy inconsistent fighter who would work hard early and then coast to a decision. No passion or fire whatsoever.

If you respect Lewis you dont know boxing.
