Lennox Lewis Chooses Vitali To Win

By Rick Reeno

Lennox Lewis has changed his mind on who he thinks will win the coming Saturday's heavyweight showdown between Vitali Klitschko and Danny Williams.

Originally, Lewis picked Danny Williams to defeat Vitali Klitschko and told the UK press that Williams had the tools to snatch the WBC heavyweight title.

Now, after looking at some fight figures and reviewing some tapes, Lewis tells BBC Radio that he now feels the champion VItali Klitschko will get the win. Lewis thinks the height and reach factor will be too much for Danny to overcome.

"Just looking at the fight and the statistics, I realise that Klitschko has a big advantage. Danny is going into the fight with a lot of things against him." said Lewis

"What he (Williams) needs to do if he really wants it, is go after Klitschko, to get inside and hit him to the body Then, if he can hit him on the face and open up a cut, perhaps he can win the fight that way."

Lewis once again put it on the record that he is not returning to Boxing for any amount of money.

"At some point in your life, you have to think about your health and future, so whatever they offer me to fight won't be enough. I can just sit back and watch them and say: 'Been there, done that.'"

I think LL has too much time on his hands and he's just trying to amuse himself.
