LENNOX LEWIS insists he is open to a potential rematch with Mike Tyson if the public want to see the fight.

The heavyweight boxers produced an epic contest 19 years ago with Lewis stopping the American in the eighth round.

And the 55-year-old British boxing legend is still open to a rematch with Tyson if there is enough interest.

Lewis told TMZ: “If the public wanted it then we would probably talk.

“I don’t know. I don’t really have nothing pushing me in the ring right now. People would love to see that fight but I don’t know.”

Lewis retired after beating Vitali Klitschko in 2003 but recently admitted he could stage a sensational comeback.

The first fight against Tyson was one of the biggest heavyweight contests with Lewis defeating the American with a stoppage in Memphis to defend his world titles.

Lewis was also linked recently with a comeback fight against heavyweight rival Riddick Bowe.
