Lennox Lewis: “If Jones hits Tyson several times, Mike will not stand and say that this is an exhibition fight”


Former undisputed heavyweight champion Lennox Lewis has doubts that Mike Tyson sees the upcoming fight against Roy Jones, which will take place next week, as an exhibition. The legendary British boxer is convinced that if Jones strikes an accented punch, then Iron Mike can forget that his performance is indicative.

“Many people say that they do an exhibition fight until they miss a shot. You know, athletes have such a moment: who will strike the last blow, who will be better.

If Roy Jones hits Tyson several times and starts running around, Mike won’t stand and say, “Okay, this is an exhibition fight.” He will say: “I have to answer you. Maybe hit you 2-3 times.” This is how it works. I would have felt that way too, “Lennox Lewis told BT Sport Boxing YouTube.

We will remind, Lewis also spoke about his reaction to the announcement of the fight Tyson – Jones.
