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.”
