Who wouldn't come out of retirement for $100M? Problem is, it's hard to generate that much money in a fight, and Im not even sure if he's asking for a guaranteed $100M, or a guaranteed lesser purse with a definite projection of back end money that will add up to $100M.

At the moment, Lewis asking for $100M could either be translation for, "I really dont wanna fight", or "Let's see who entertains my BS, and hopefully I can still get at least 8 figures out of this mumbo jumbo". I like Lennox, but asking for that much money is absurd at this point.

It's a guarantee he wants. Rumor was he already got offered 50 mil

He better take that 50 and STFU up then!

That's a nice bit of cheese to rack up on, after 10 years of retirement. Just go out there, go for the gusto, and get KO'd if you have to, but get your money. Yall can call me crazy for that statement, but whose crazier, me or the guy asking for a guaranteed $100M???

Really? How many paying fans today are not even that familiar with him as a fighter? And Klit cant even get a PPV. George Foreman would generate more interest.

FOH, I don't want to see a Lennox do anything, they should offer him a 100 mil to stfu, RIP to Emanuel Steward, he had the craziest stories about Lennox but I've yet to find anything interesting about him. I'd go to Dolomite's wedding before I watch him fight again laugh.gif

Who even has the balls to ask for this much money? Consumers get offended by things like this. I mean shit, if every fighter walks around asking for $100M a fight, then these PPVs are gonna be 80-100 dollars sooner or later.

Hell, Floyd is starting to piss me off too. The more this dude demands (and is guaranteed) in his upcoming fights, the more they'll charge for PPVs. Dude, just be happy with the "otherworldly" money that you're already getting right, and keep your hoes in check.

Yeah that's right, I'm complaining, AND??? I'm a CONSUMER for pete's sake, so I have a right to complain! The customer's ALWAYS right, regardless of how dumb they sound! laugh.gif

I've seen Lennox recently in interviews. He's no where near fight shape. Fuck that. Eat a dick. Should have gave him the rematch he deserves.

Apparently this was some gross overreaction by British media from an interview Lennox gave at the last Klinch-KO snooze fest.

Well.. him and lennox did kind of go life and death, and that was lennox on two weeks notice. Let's not act like klitchko was sitting pretty in there, lennox was hammering him to. If outside investors were willing to get involved for pac mayweather this could definitely be possible especially without arum and gbp in the way. This fight would be huge in the UK and I'm sure a few filthy rich scumbags wouldn't mind throwing some euros and pounds around to make it happen. Klitchkos almost fill SOCCER STADIUMS (maybe not after last week Lmao) this fight bring in some serious cash.

brutal fight but if you watch it.. aside from Vital's face being ripped open. Lewis was hammering the shit out him prior to the stoppage. good scrap but Lewis won clearly in my view

Couldn't agree with you more. Lewis might have been out of shape but he was still hammering vitaly, he threw some vicious uppercuts towards the end!
