These days the former Undisputed Champion of the world, Lennox Lewis is enjoying retirement. Lewis who retired from Boxing in early 2004 admits that he has thought about making a comeback to professional Boxing. Speaking to the Sunday Times, Lewis admitted that he has battled with the idea of returning for another fight.

Quoted by the Sunday Times, Lewis stated: ”I did consider making a comeback.”

Lewis added: “I thought about it whenever I watched the other heavyweights out there, but I talked myself out of it almost in the same breath.

"‘Do I really need to do it? I’ve accomplished all that I need to accomplish, so I don’t need to do this again.’

Lewis feels their is no need to have a rematch with Vitali Klitschko and that his lecacy is sealed.

”Some people said I should have fought Klitschko again, but what for? I beat him and there will always be somebody out there, someone else to fight, but I’ve created a legacy, so why put it all at risk?" said Lewis.

Lewis is grateful that the way he ended his career puts him historically alongside some famous names. Lewis stated: ”I’m one of only three heavyweights ever to retire on top [Gene Tunney and Rocky Marciano were the others] and that’s important to me. That’s history.”
