Boxing: Klitschko camp rubbish reports of Lewis bout
BERLIN (AFP) - The management of world heavyweight champions Vitali and Wladimir Klitschko on Wednesday dismissed reports of a possible bout against Britain's 48-year-old former champion Lennox Lewis.
"That's absurd, it's garbage. We don't give something like that any thought," the Klitschkos' manager Bernd Boente told SID, an AFP subsidiary.
British newspaper the Daily Mail reported that Lewis, who retired in 2003, is prepared to climb back into the ring to face either Klitschko brother for US$100 million (S$125 million).
Lewis is reported to have told Russian promoters he is prepared to come back to fight either Klitschko for the biggest purse in boxing history.
