Boxing news: Dillian Whyte challenges Lennox Lewis to cook-off as pair exchange words on social media
Dillian Whyte and Lennox Lewis have agreed to a cook-off as the boxers claim they will square off in the kitchen.
Britain’s current top heavyweight contender and former undisputed heavyweight champion exchanged words on social media overnight, resulting in Whyte challenging Lewis to a culinary competition.
The ‘Body Snatcher’ impressed as he appeared on MasterChef earlier this year, however Lennox is refusing to back down in a battle of cooking credentials.
After fellow ex-boxer Spencer Fearon first suggested the idea, Lewis replied: “I’m up for that challenge.”
Whyte then chimed in: “Let’s do it, I will teach you a thing or two about cooking and you can teach me how to use my uppercut close up in fights like you used to champ.”
