LONDON --(AP) Former world heavyweight champion Lennox Lewis says he will end his retirement to fight Vitali Klitschko in November.
 

"I'm making a comeback later this year," Lewis told the Sunday Mirror, a London tabloid. "The money is up to 21 million pounds ($39.3 million) right now and I simply can't turn that much cash down.

"I need the money just like everyone else and it's just too good to turn down."

Lewis, 39, retired Feb. 6 with a 41-1-2 record. Klitschko assumed the title April 24 when he beat Corrie Sanders.

Lewis and Klitschko last fought in June 2003. Lewis was behind on points when the fight was stopped in the sixth round because Klitschko was cut.

That was Lewis' last fight and he was booed out of the ring after a poor performance. The WBC mandated a rematch, but Lewis retired instead.

LOL Has the cost of living gone up that much that a bloke can't manage on £100 million
I'm sorry Lennox you don't need the money
It is quite an offensive comment to make

I dont know man $40 Million dollars to get in the ring one last time is pretty tempting. I guess if I were Lennox I would think about it, but damn...... $40 Million. Ah who am I kidding. Win or loose he still gets 40 million. So I say do it.


TRD

He reportedly owes a fair bit to the IRS, i think he has a house in Miami or somewhere. He said it would help clear that and leave a nice sum for himself...
