HISTORY can be contested. But Lennox Lewis won’t let his legacy be disregarded, even if it meant confronting US broadcaster Showtime to remind them that he was the last undisputed heavyweight champion of the world.

“Can you believe that? Can you believe they actually tried to come out with that? I gave it to them though. They heard from me and they apologised so it’s all good,” Lewis tells Boxing News. “The main people who were saying that type of thing, they had to be woken up.

“History’s been rewritten a few times, I just couldn’t allow it to be rewritten this time when I’m involved.”
