Earlier this month retired Heavyweight Champion of the World Lennox Lewis voiced his opinion on the possibility of Evander Holyfield and Mike Tyson facing off for a third time. There have been rumors, not substantiated by any facts that Tyson and Holyfield could face each other as early as June of this year. Lewis stated on the BBC's Radio 5: "I wouldn't give Tyson a hope."

Lewis further stated Holyfield is a better fighter than Tyson, and the outcome of a thrid fight would predictable.
"Evander's obviously the better fighter but I'd rather see him do something else. Why fight the same fight again? We all know who would win," said Lewis.

Lewis who defeated both men handily during his professional career that ended in 2004, added that Tyson and Holyfield, who are both up there in age, would be putting their health at risk.

Lewis stated: "There's always a danger every time you step into the ring with a man who weighs over 200lbs and is throwing hard punches at you." Lewis added: "But one of the reasons that made me quit is the things I used to do at 20, I couldn't do any more when I got to 40."
