By Johnny Benz, Doghouse Boxing. - Lennox Lewis considers David Haye a good friend and supports Haye as a boxer, but admits he would not trash talk the way Haye often does before a fight.  Quoted recently by the Sun (a U.K. media outlet), Lewis spoke out on why he preferred to use his fists in the ring to trash talk as opposed to his mouth.  Lewis drew on his fight with Mike Tyson...

Lewis, quoted by the publication, stated: "I realized that people can do all the talking they want, but it really comes down to what you do in the ring. When Mike Tyson fought me in 2002, he had all these tough guys around him... including a guy called Crocodile."

Lewis went on to add: "But it didn't bother me because I knew he couldn't bring them in the ring with him, it was just me and him. To shut them up, all I had to do was beat Tyson... and I did just that."

Although Tyson and Lennox were enemies in their fighting days, these days they keep in touch using twitter and it's nothing but brotherly love and respect for one another.
