Lewis-Klitschko fight collapses
Mike Tyson was comprehensively beaten by Lennox Lewis
Lennox Lewis has not fought since June
Lennox Lewis could face a rematch with Mike Tyson for his next fight after talks over a proposed bout with Vitali Klitschko collapsed.

The WBC heavyweight champion had been expected to take on Ukrainian Klitschko, the WBC's number one contender, on 12 April in Las Vegas.

But Judd Burnstein, Lewis' attorney, has revealed that the Briton will watch how Tyson fares against Clifford Etienne in Memphis on 22 February before deciding on his next move.

"Now that there will be no April fight, Lennox has a contractual obligation to consider Mike Tyson as his June opponent and looks forward to seeing how Tyson performs in his February fight against Clifford Etienne," said Burnstein.

Lewis stopped Tyson in the eighth round of their heavyweight championship fight on 8 June and has not fought since.
