Lennox Lewis Pushes Fan For Putting His Fist In His Face

Lennox Lewis Pushes Fan For Putting His Fist In His Face

Lennox Lewis didn't take too kindly to an obnoxious fan who put his fist in his face.

Lewis took time out to take pictures with boxing fans at the MGM Grand in Las Vegas, but one person showed everyone how not to act when asking for a photo.

A fan approached him by grabbing his shoulder before holding his fist next to Lewis' face in an awkward encounter.

Lewis immediately moved the fan's arm away then had a few words before shoving him and declining the picture.

The caption accompanied with the video perfectly sums up the situation: "How not to act when asking for a photo, let alone with a heavyweight boxing great."

Tom Gray of the Ring Magazine also said: "You could have the craziest of days, see some outrageous things, but you'll rarely see anything dumber than this. The guy's lucky it wasn't Mike Tyson, he'd be in three pieces."

Lewis was in attendance for Deontay Wilder's successful defence of his WBC title and the former heavyweight champion believes the American is the best heavyweight in the world.

"Deontay," Lewis said when asked who's the best heavyweight. Ahead of Tyson Fury? "Absolutely," Lewis replied. "Now I say that because of Fury's last fight [against Otto Wallin]. So, that last fight kinda dropped him a couple points."

Lewis also praised unified heavyweight champion Andy Ruiz Jr. "He's there. He still has a lot to prove. He's still gotta get past this second fight with [Anthony] Joshua. But, you know, if you're asking me the number one and two, it's Deontay and Fury."

Ruiz Jr makes the first defence of his unified titles against Anthony Joshua in a huge rematch this Saturday in Saudi Arabia.
