An Open Letter to Lennox Lewis

Dear Lennox Lewis,

Listen, dude, I know what you’re thinking. You see all these fights, and all these fighters as part of your job with HBO Sports announcing boxing. You look at the woeful state of the heavyweight division and you think to yourself, “You know, old bean. These pugilists are woefully inadequate. We could vault over this barricade and give these scousers a right wallop on the coconut.”

Then you have a hot cup of tea and crumpets and get your hair rebraided. But it's not that simple.
