Boxing: Lewis on the road

THE LENNOX Lewis-Evander Holyfield roadshow looks likely to arrive in Europe during mid-January as yet another hectic leg of Frank Maloney's schedule.

Lewis and Holyfield are set to hard-sell their heavyweight title unification showdown, scheduled for 13 March, with press conferences in London, Paris and Germany this month, and will be accompanied by the promoter, Don King. This follows a whistle-stop tour of America, during which the mega-bout was officially announced last month.

Maloney, Lewis's manager, has recently won the European Boxing Union's "title" as Promoter of the Year. And, true to form, he still has several other shows to promote prior to the Lewis-Holyfield fight in New York, in addition to organising the World Boxing Council champion's training camp in the Pocono Hills, Pennsylvania.
