Lennox Lewis Confirms EA Sports Is Considering Fight Night Revival For Xbox And PS5
Lennox Lewis has dropped a bombshell claim that EA Sports is 'considering' the stunning revival of the Fight Night franchise on PlayStation 5 and Xbox Series X.
The FIFA 20 publisher's last entry in the beloved boxing series came with the release of Fight Night Champion in March 2011 for PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360.
And fans have been vocal about their desire for EA Sports to release a new Fight Night, with one online petition receiving over 10,000 signatures.
Lewis took to Twitter to suggest that he has heard rumblings that the Fight Night publisher is considering the revival of the series on the next-generation consoles.
The 54-year-old boxing legend tweeted: "Just heard @EASPORTS is considering bring back #FightNight for XBox and PS5 [sic].
"What do you think about that? If they do, they better do me more justice on my fighter rating."
One boxing fan told Lewis that he considered him to be his second best heavyweight of all time, but he also asked who would be on the legend's list.
And the former undisputed champ revealed that he would only have one man on his list: the legendary Muhammad Ali.
"I just have one person on my list.... Ali. After that, doesn't matter," he responded.
While Lewis is keen to see an improved rating for himself in a potential new Fight Night title, one fan joked that he never picked the legend in the series.
And the Brit pulled no punches and dropped a brilliant response: "That's probably why u lost so much."
Eddie Hearn has also expressed his desire to see a reboot of the Fight Night franchise and admitted that he wrote to the publisher last year.
The 40-year-old Matchroom boss, who is Anthony Joshua's promoter, remains optimistic that EA Sports' fan-favourite series could return this year.
EA Sports announced last year that Fight Night Round 4's servers would close in March, which also sparked rumours that a new entry could be in the works.
