LENNOX LEWIS'S dithering over whether he wants to defend the world heavyweight championship or quit boxing is driving his trainer to distraction.
Lewis has not fought since claiming a controversial win against giant Ukrainian Vitali Klitschko in Los Angeles last June and the delay in an
announcement about the Londoner's future has left the heavyweight division in limbo.
The World Boxing Council has given Lewis a deadline of early March to make up his mind or risk being stripped of the title, and Emanuel Steward today
admitted he was "very disappointed" about the situation.
