Haha, you are one of the few that appreciate that interview. I have mentioned it before about how funny that interview is, I'm glad there is someone who found the same. Me and my brother have watched that interview a few times to just have a laugh about it.
I still laugh about that shit every time I think of it. Lennox's pure denial of everything that had taken place was just sheer brilliance. Larry talking down to him while looking up, and yanking the mic out of his hands just took things to a whole 'nother level. Here's some of the gems I particularly enjoyed:
Merchant: "Lennox, you said he had no heart, you said he had no skill. What do you say now?"
Lennox: "Well if the fight woulda went more..."
Merchant: [cutting him off] "The fight didn't go more! The fight went 6 rounds, what is your impression of him now?"
Lennox: "He's okay... whaddya, whaddya want me to say?"
Lennox: "blah blah blah... so I don't know what YER talking about!" [used that exact line about 50 times. In fact, it was even the last thing he said to Merchant, lol.
Merchant: "You were behind on all 3 scorecards."
Lennox: "Listen! He woulda got knocked out in the next coupla rounds, it was just a matter of time, he was definitely detereorating, so I don't even know what yer talking about."
Merchant: "I'm just telling you what the scoring of the officials is."
Lennox: "Oh... okay."
Merchant: "Were you tired, you seemed tired as well?"
Lennox: [still trying to catch his breath and sweating profusely all over the place, being wiped down by his corner mid-interview about seventeen times.] "I was just getting my second wind." [smiles at the ridiculousness of his own blatant lie.]
And my personal favorite, as stated before:
Merchant: "Why do you think they were cheering him and booing you, Lennox?"
Lennox: [pauses] "I wouldn't say that Larry. I wouldn't say that."
Merchant: "Do you think they were just surprised that he was able to compete with you and maybe they were just cheering for the underdog?"
Lennox: "I wouldn't say that, Larry."
Lennox: "I had one Klitschko for lunch. Bring on his brother, I'll have him for lunch too."
Merchant: "That was a hard meal to digest."
Lennox: "But I digested it good, so I don't know what YER talking abou..."
Larry yanks the mic away before Lennox actually gets it out this time.
