By Johnny Benz (March 2, 2008) Doghouse Boxing  
The former Undisputed Champion of the World, Lennox Lewis is making his voice clear that he is against Evander Holyfield and Mike Tyson fighting for a third time. Lennox who has defeated both men easily, told the BBC Radio 5 Live's Sportweek program that a third bout between the two would simply be "an entertainment ploy."

Lewis stated on the program: "I wouldn't give Tyson a hope," adding: "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 to win."

Lewis also warned about the health risks that both Holyfield and Tyson may get themselves into, stating: "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 anymore when I got to 40."
