Fury, meanwhile, appears to have passed up the chance to replicate that.

He announced his “retirement” after knocking out Dillian Whyte, before any fight against the winner of Anthony Joshua versus Oleksandr Usyk rematch could be arranged.

Lewis has called on Fury to postpone hanging up the gloves and “clean up the division” to follow in his giant footsteps.

Speaking to Piers Morgan on TalkTV, Lewis laughed: “I refuse to answer easy questions.

“Listen, Tyson Fury is a great champion, he moves well and he punches hard.

“[He] has a great jab – and an uppercut now – and all he has to do is clean out the division like I did and beat the next generation.”

Lewis won 41 of his 44 professional fights, suffering two losses and drawing the other.
