Lewis Quotes After Klitschko Thompson Fight

After the fight last Saturday (July 12th, 2008) between WBO/IBF/IBO heavyweight champion Wladimir "Steelhammer" Klitschko and WBO mandatory Tony "The Tiger" Thompson, former unified heavyweight champion Lennox Lewis had a few things to say.

Lewis On Haye

"It's very early for David Haye right now. People keep asking me about him and I tell them he has real talent. He's very good, he's upcoming, he can punch and he's very capable. I know he's calling out Wladimir Klitschko right now but I don't think he's ready yet. But 18 months down the line? Maybe then he has what it takes."

Lewis On Thompson

"Tony Thompson fought a good fight. "He didn't have the power to hurt Wladimir, who has good talent when he uses it."

Lewis On Klitschko

"The further the fight went, the more Wladimir started to relax and was a little less robotic. I always said Klitschko could throw great right hands and it was a real good shot that knocked Tony out. The problem for Klitschko is the way the heavyweights are now. He doesn't have no challengers. Maybe there's one, but he's retired. You could say, I've been there and done that."
