The retired, and last undisputed heavyweight champion of the world, Lennox Lewis believes if he comes out of retirement to fight Wladimir Klitschko, it would make more money than Floyd Mayweather vs. Manny Pacquiao.
Speaking to the BBC Radio, Lewis stated:
"If I came out of retirement now and boxed Wladimir Klitschko I'm sure we'd make more money because we're heavyweights and command a lot more attention. People love heavyweights."
Now before anyone wonders, Lewis is NOT hinting at a comeback. In fact he told the program regarding coming out of retirement: "I have dreamt about it... then woke up and talked myself out of it."
