🚨 Lennox Lewis gives brutally honest Deontay Wilder assessment

Posted by

The last undisputed heavyweight champion was in attendance for Deontay Wilder’s defeat to Joseph Parker on the ‘Day Of Reckoning’ card.

The hard-hitting American hadn’t boxed much in the last two years and only needed one round to knock out veteran heavyweight Robert Helenius prior to his fight with Parker.

And Lennox Lewis believes he lacked focus and he took the fight for the money and of course thinks ring rust played a part.

Speaking to The Ring Magazine, he said:

“I don’t know what he was focused on, [but] mentally he said it was the money. ‘They paid me, I wasn’t really ready but I came out and gave them this for a little money. It doesn’t matter what way it goes, I’m prepared for a loss, I’m prepared for a win. Let God decide.’ He lost his spark.”

He continued: “Get with someone who can make those powerful punches even more lethal by working on other stuff like a great uppercut, a great hook. Surprise them, they’re looking for the right hand, hit them with an uppercut, a hook.”

“I think his business mind took it because he was in no way prepared for Parker, not even with a warm-up fight. He said he’s not going to be rusty, he’s not Houdini, everybody gets rusty. What he’s saying didn’t really compute to me.”
