On stage with Lennox will be a number of superstar guests. We chatted to Lennox about the upcoming event. Visit the Lennox Lewis official website.
I know you are spending some time in London at the minute, can you tell us a bit about what you have coming up?
On September 6th, I have a show called ‘the undisputed, an evening with Lennox Lewis’. This is where people can come see me, hear about old fights that I had. I know there are a lot of things people didn’t know about me as the only thing people used to see was me go into the ring and box. No one ever knew what took me there, what I had to go through to get there and what different polotrics I had to go through.
Now, this is a time where I can reveal never seen before footage and it is going to bring you back into the time when I was boxing, and into that moment. Footage is amazing in how it can do that, and I am ready to show that and speak about the times and what happened in my life.
I’m also going to have celebrity friends here, Russell Peters, the comedian is going to be there. There will be loads of people, including boxers that fought me before, Vitali Klitschko will be there along with a number of boxers from Britain. I have invited Frank Bruno to be there, but whether he comes or not, I don’t know!
EXCLUSIVE EXQUISITE INTERVIEW
LENNOX LEWIS ON LOSING
The last Undisputed Heavyweight World Champion opened up to Exquisite about his experience of 'losing' and facing the most challenging part of his career.
When asked about the most challenging part of his boxing career, Lennox simply replied, 'when I lost, was the most challenging.'
He told Exquisite - "Losing just didn’t even ever go through my mind. I was always just focused on thinking about winning, winning and winning and when I lost, its like I had to empty my cup and fill it back up again. Losing made me go through a little drama mentally, which is tough, but I do think the fact that I did lose, made me a better person and a better boxer overall.
After facing struggles of accepting defeat, Lennox knows all too well the feelings of failure, but insists it made him a better person and a better boxer. However, Lennox still maintains that winning is everything and wouldn't recommend that boxers now need to lose to get better.
He told Exquisite, "I would never say lose! But I would say - when you step into the ring, you know that there can only ever be one winner.
When I lost, people said to me ‘well what are you going to do now?’, and I had no idea. It was my first ever loss and I had to think and say, well, Muhammad Ali lost 3 times. I always kept that in my mind so you know, you can lose a couple times and it is okay, as long as you get back up and win again.
