Boxing: Lewis will return to ring if offer is doubled to $125 million
LONDON (AFP) - Lennox Lewis has said he is prepared to fight one of the Klitschko brothers if they offer him US$100 million (S$125 million) - the biggest purse in boxing history.
It is nearly a decade since British boxer Lewis retired as the undisputed heavyweight champion of the world.
But such is the poor state of the division, the now 48-year-old Lewis said he was offered US$50 million in Moscow at the weekend while attending Wladimir Klitschko's successful defence of his world titles against Alexander Povetkin.
Lewis responded by promising to return to the ring for US$100 million.
