Lennox Lewis will pull no punches when he talks Sporting Heroes through his career.
The Lion will sit down with Gary Newbon on Wednesday evening to reflect on his boxing days, which yielded an Olympic gold medal and a stint as undisputed heavyweight champion of the world.

Lewis will reminisce on topping the podium at the 1988 Games in Seoul when he represented Canada and defeated American star Riddick Bowe in the super-heavyweight category.
The West Ham-born pugilist will also talk through his journey into the pro ranks and defeating Frank Bruno in a British ding-dong in Cardiff in 1993 to retain his WBC heavyweight title.
Lewis will reflect on his other career-defining bouts, too, including his knockout loss to Hasim Rahman in 2001, his classic contests with Evander Holyfield and his final two eye-catching clashes, victories over Mike Tyson and Vitali Klitschko.
