Lennox Lewis in talks to fight a Klitschko?

Lennox Lewis claims that he is in talks to return to boxing to fight one of the Klitschko brothers.

Heavyweight legend Lennox Lewis has revealed that he is in talks to come out of retirement in order to challenge a Klitschko brother for a world title.

The 48-year-old - the former undisputed king of the division - was reportedly offered $50m (£31.3m) over the weekend, but has told promoters that they will have to double that offer for him to put the gloves back on.

"[$100m] is my price tag and it is under discussion," the Daily Mail quotes Lewis as saying.

"I have told them I can be ready in six months and I am in provisional training. I am already under 300lb (around 50lb shy of his fighting weight)."

Lewis finished his career in 2003 with a 41-2-1 record, with his last victory coming over Vitali Klitschko.

However, the ruling was a technical decision in the sixth round after the Ukrainian suffered a cut.
