Former undisputed heavyweight champion Lennox Lewis (41-2, 32 KOs) will be just one of the special guests during the title defense of WBA/IBF/WBO/IBO heavyweight champion Wladimir Klitschko (60-3, 51 KOs) against WBA “regular” champion Alexander Povetkin (26-0, 18 KOs) on October 5 in Moscow. Russian businessman Andrey Ryabinsky, the event organizer, officially announced that Lewis accepted his invitation and will be ringside in Olympic Stadium. Lennox will be the third Olympic boxing gold medalist in the building. Wladimir won the gold in 1996 in Atlanta and Alexander won gold in 2004 in Athens. Lewis got his Olympic gold in 1988 in Seoul, beating Riddick Bowe. For Lennox, it could be a very interesting place and time for 10-year anniversary and reunion with his last professional rival – WBC champion Vitali Klitschko (45-2, 41 KOs), who, as always, will be cheering for his younger brother in Russia’s capitol. Who will Lewis cheer for?
