Lennox Lewis (the last true undisputed heavyweight champion of the world) is no stranger to fights that are in high demands from the boxing fans and hard to make. None of us can forget how badly we wanted Lennox Lewis vs. Mike Tyson and there were plenty of stumbling blocks and hurdles to make that fight happen. With rival networks, rival promoter and rival egos in play, Lewis vs. Tyson could have easily never become a reality... Yet, it happened.
And let us not forget that Tyson bit down with his teeth and chomped on Lewis' thigh during a press event to promote the fight... a crazy melee ensued! So even when contracts had been signed, there was still doubts the fight would get cancelled and never happen.
Shortly after Floyd Mayweather vs. Manny Pacquiao was announced, Lewis
took to his twitter account and posted: "Glad 2see that all parties concerned were able 2make #MayPac happen! If me and @MikeTyson could do it, I had no doubt they could too!"
Well, I felt the fight would happen also, but unlike Lewis, I had plenty of doubt... but as I stated above, Lewis is no stranger to tough fights that are hard to negotiate.
Here is the actual tweet from Lewis...
Glad 2see that all parties concerned were able 2make #MayPac happen! If me and @MikeTyson could do it, I had no doubt they could too!
