• Klitschko needs WBC belt to be a true champ: Lewis


    BERLIN: Former undisputed world heavyweight champion Lennox Lewis says current champ Wladimir Klitschko, who faces Tyson Fury next Saturday (Sunday in Manila), lacks the last final belt to be considered his legitimate successor. Klitschko, 39, will defend his IBF, WBA and IBO titles against Britain’s Fury, 27, in Duesseldorf next Saturday having last tasted defeat more than a decade ago. But Lewis, 50, says the Ukrainian giant needs to match his feat of adding the WBC title to consider himself a true champion across the divisions. “For that, he needs to have every championship belt,” Lewis told German daily Die Welt on Sunday. “I had them all.”
