Eternal WBC world champion and mayor of Kiev, Vitali Klitschko will hold an exhibition bout against former undisputed world champion Lennox Lewis in Kiev in the autumn.

According to the official fan club of Klitschko brothers “men’s conversation to the two gentlemen with gestures” will be organized during the 56th Congress of the world Boxing Council (WBC), which will be held from 30 September to 5 October 2018 in Kiev.


The exhibition battle will be held in the charity auction. About how the auction’s going to be, and what will be the format of the match is still unknown.

The fight Vitali Klitschko vs Lennox Lewis, which took place on 21 June 2003, was stopped by the doctor because of the cut of a boxer from Ukraine, despite the fact that the current mayor of Kiev was winning the fight on all three judges with a score of 58:56.

After the match, the British athlete was promised a rematch to the opponent, but has not kept his promise and a few months later ended his professional career.

Recently Klitschko said that the holding of a rematch against Lewis, my mother interrupted a British boxer. According to the Ukrainian boxer, he did not like the mother of a British man and she told her son never to spend with him fight.

In an exhibition...

Vitali Klitschko to hold exhibition fight against Lewis in Kyiv this autumn
14:17 07.07.2018

Kyiv Mayor Vitali Klitschko, who was crowned the "Eternal World Heavyweight Champion" by the WBC, will again fight former world champion Lennox Lewis as part of the 56th WBC Congress to be held in Kyiv from September 30 to October 5, 2018.

"This will be an exhibition fight, which will be held as part of a charity auction. The details of the auction and the format of the bout have not been publicized yet," reads a report posted on the website of the official fan club of the Klitschko brothers.

A well-known fight between Klitschko and Lewis took place on June 21, 2003. A dramatic bout was stopped by the doctor after the Ukrainian boxer sustained a deep cut above his left eye. Klitschko was ahead 58-56 on the scorecards when the fight was stopped. Lewis defended his champion title thanks to that victory, a rematch was not held, and the Briton soon ended his career.

Hmm , my memory of this is a bit different to this account. Firstly, there's the implication that somehow Lewis was lucky to get a win on a cut. The fight got stopped because Lewis tore Vitaly's face to pieces with hard punches. He had several cuts, each one enough to get a fight stopped on its own.

Secondly, the famous "promise" of a rematch. If I remember correctly, Lewis was still in the ring celebrating, and Vitaly started acting like a twat, getting in Lewis's face, shoving him, and demanding a rematch. Lewis said "Yeah, sure" just to stop Vitaly embarrassing himself further.

If this does happen, it'd be cool if outwardly they both said it's just an exhibition, a bit of fun for 'charidee', but behind the scenes they both secretly take part in 16 week training camps, come into the ring chissled to fuck and proceed to beat the living crap out of each other for WBC Eternal King of the Entire Infinite Universe jewell entrusted Titanium and Astatine Belt.

More interesting fight than Oquendo v Charr.

Does make you wonder how many boxers end up sparring each other years after retiring just for kicks.

The Klitschkos are sneaky shits, wouldn’t surprise me if Vitali took this seriously and tried to KO old overweight Lewis

If this happens I'm guessing it's a 3 rounds of sparring with body and head gear, at the actual conference. Rather than an actual fight.

If they were to rematch for real it'd be worth millions to both of them, no doubt about it.
