Lennox Lewis Challenges Joshua's Undisputed Quest, Sparks Verbal Sparring with Hearn
Boxing legend Lennox Lewis has ignited a fiery exchange with promoter Eddie Hearn over Anthony Joshua’s path to the undisputed heavyweight title. Lewis, Britain’s last undisputed champion, expressed skepticism about Hearn’s plan, particularly questioning Joshua’s readiness for Tyson Fury. The proposed strategy hinges on Joshua defeating Francis Ngannou on March 8, but Lewis deems Otto Wallin and Ngannou as insufficient tests for the lineal champion.
In a back-and-forth with Hearn, Lewis addressed the criticism, labeling himself a ‘Joshua hater’ due to his views on the undisputed plan. Hearn defended the approach, emphasizing that the winner of Joshua vs. Ngannou would face the victor of Fury vs. Usyk for undisputed glory.
However, Lewis remained unconvinced, asserting a stronger case for the winner of Joseph Parker vs. Zhilei Zhang to contend for the undisputed title. The exchange highlighted differing perspectives on Joshua’s journey to undisputed status.
The verbal sparring between Lewis and Hearn underscores the intense scrutiny and debate surrounding Joshua’s potential undisputed path. Fans await developments as
