Lennox Lewis states that he is not in talks about a possible return to the ring.

Former undisputed heavyweight world champion Lennox Lewis has played down talk that he would return to boxing for $100m (£62.5m).

The 48-year-old, who retired in 2003, was quoted as saying that he would consider a comeback for the right price as he attended Wladimir Klitschko's victory over Alexander Povetkin in Moscow.

However, he has now cleared up the misunderstanding by insisting that he was talking hypothetically.

Posting on Twitter, he said: "A hypothetical answer to a hypothetical question does NOT equal reality #NoComeback"

Lewis retired with a 42-2-1 record shortly after a sixth-round TKO win over Vitali Klitschko, who suffered a cut.
