Sports Letters: Odds against

Sir: I thoroughly enjoyed Ken Jones' article on the British challenge for the world heavyweight title (27 February).

But could someone please tell me what Lennox Lewis has done to justify being made favourite to defeat Evander Holyfield on 13 March? Lest we forget, Lewis was on his way to defeat against Frank Bruno until he (like so many others) managed to render Bruno senseless with one punch. Holyfield is the real deal.
