    A rematch versus Vitali Klitschko.

    As much as I'd love to see it, Lennox, stay retired. For your own good.

    A Lewis comeback would be a bad idea. Not quite as bad as Tommy Morrison's, but still bad.

    why even call it a comeback in boxing at this point?

    First of all he would probably only make the comeback for around $15 million or more, which is a pretty nice chunk of change for an hour of work. Tommy Morrison probably made what? $1,500 and 500 Delta miles?

    And it's against a guy who bleeds whenever you stare at him long enough. Besides Lennox-Vitali I was a hell of a six-round heavyweight fight.

    I'd always hoped that Lewis would make a clean break. Hang up the gloves and walk away. Boxers never do that though. At least with Lewis, if he comes back, he'll making a nice chunk of change. It's not depressing like, say, Thomas Hearns having a fight last year at a show in Michigan. Four years though is a long time to be inactive especially at the age Lewis is now.

    As long as he can pass the required medical tests, he can do whatever he wants with his life.
    None of us have a greater stake in his wellbeing than he does.
    If you want to talk about guys who shouldn't be allowed to box, talk about Joe Siciliano, a 49-year-old morbidly obese cop who will be fighting Butterbean on March 9. In his second pro fight, Siciliano fought Peter McNeeley. The first left hook McNeeley landed lifted him 4 inches off the canvas.

    I thought the sport of boxing was dead already. I'd rather see Lala (sp?) Ali than a lot of these heavyweights floating around today.

    I have one question ....WHY?
    He doesn't need the money and so what if he wins, he won't gain anymore noteriety.

    to me, regardless of what happens, Lewis is still the guy who was only the best of a bad heavyweight division.
