AN announcement is expected this week that Lennox Lewis, the WBC heavyweight champion, will fight Frank Bruno at a major outdoor venue in September. First, the pair must win their next assignments - Lewis in the first defence of his title against Tony Tucker in Las Vegas on 8 May, and Bruno in his bout with Carl 'The Truth' Williams at Birmingham's National Exhibition Centre on 24 April. Lewis's manager Frank Maloney and Bruno's promoter Mickey Duff met at a London hotel yesterday to discuss the possibility of staging the fight at Wembley stadium or, perhaps, Old Trafford.

LLOYD HONEYGHAN is to fight the former World Boxing Association light- middleweight champion, Vinny Pazienza, on 26 June in Atlantic City.
