Lennox Lewis sent a tongue-in-cheek message to virtual World Boxing Super Series organizers after being stopped by Joe Frazier in the quarter-final.
The former undisputed champion was dropped early in the eBoxing bout but rallied before being downed again in the seventh.
Frazier then progressed to a semi-final clash with old rival Muhammad Ali which the eWBSS is calling Ali vs Frazier IV.
Upon suffering the loss, Lewis called for a second fight between the pair once the dust settles on the competition.
“Congrats to Smokin’ Joe on a big win. He caught me with a great shot that and I was never really able to recover from. Hats off to him. 😂😂😂 I’ll see him in the rematch,” said Lewis.
