Lennox Lewis plans a comeback fight; wants $100m purse

Money, as always, can change firm decisions.

Lennox Lewis is willing to come out from retirement to fight Wladimir Klitschko, but demands $100m purse according to a report posted on The Independent.
I said at the time that it will take $50m to get me out of my pyjamas but now I have to consider the value of my legacy of having retired as undisputed champion. That will cost them $100m.'

Well, for me, having the right price, then why not? And as a boxing fan; I love to see Lewis fights Wladimir Klitschko. I'm bored watching Wladimir fought challengers that can't match his size and height advantage. Wladimir's fight with Povetkin last week evolved in an old boxing cliché; "big man can whip good little man".

Alexander Povetkin will die trying but can't overcome the bigger man, simply because Klitschko maximized his size advantage and fought wisely.

Lewis obviously can match Wladimir size and height advantage.

Well, it's still early to preview this fight. It's not even sure if any promoter could guarantee such big amount.

Do you think a promoter can afford to risk a guaranteed $100m for Lewis at this point?
