Quotes

#Quote
1I always ask myself why old heavyweights come back, but I plan to stay out of the ring. I've got a new life now, a new future, there's a lot more to Lennox Lewis than just being a boxer. I am very sure about my decision.
2I was looking at retirement a couple of fights ago, but then was thinking 'shall I have one more fight?' That's the drug of the sport, there's always one more fight. There has to be a time when I can gracefully bow out. If I don't feel the same hunger as I once did then I definitely shouldn't box any more.
3In boxing you create a strategy to beat each new opponent, it's just like chess.
4I am the master of the sweet science. There is not one heavyweight who can match my skill.
5Hashim Rahman was going to knock me out. Hashim Rahman was going to end my career. Hashim Rahman was going to humiliate me. He needs to change his name to Has-Been Rahman now!
6Mike Tyson it's time to put up or shut up!
