Find the best quotes by Lennox Lewis.
The mission I set out on in the beginning – to become heavyweight champion of the world, undisputed, lineal champion – you could say that…
You can just fight one man at a time.
When you look back in history and see other fighters coming back, it’s never really been good for them.
So, I gave my belts out to others to give them a chance.
When you go into the other guy’s backyard you cannot hope to win on points.
People know I was the last true champion.
If the money’s right, I’m happy to bust up the other side of his face… No problem.
I’ve worked hard and accomplished what I’ve accomplished in the heavyweight scene.
If I don’t feel the same hunger as I once did then I definitely shouldn’t box any more.
I just want to complete my legacy.
I wanted to prove I was the best fighter in the world.
I don’t have anything else to prove.
I have been in there with all of them and there is nothing left for me to prove.
My main goal was to win all the belts, and I have done that.
Whatever I do, I always want to get better.
During the past 23 years, I have set a number of goals for myself and I’m proud to say that these goals have been achieved.
It’s not rage that drives me, it’s competition.
Now I am ready to set new goals and start a new career for myself outside of the ring.
I always ask myself why old heavyweights come back, but I plan to stay out of the ring.
If the media didn’t know I played chess, there’d be no angle on me at all.
