Daily News, New York - February 6, 2004

NEW YORK - Heavyweight champ Lennox Lewis has called a news conference in London on Friday and is widely expected to announce he is hanging up his gloves after nearly a decade at the top of the division.

Lewis and his representatives were secretive about Friday's topic, but BBC Radio reported that Lewis was going to announce his retirement because his mother, Violet, wanted the 38-year-old heavyweight champ to stop boxing.

The announcement that there was going to be a news conference caught several people involved in Lewis' boxing career by surprise, but the reports that he could announce his retirement did not.
