Former world heavyweight champion Lennox Lewis has brandished Tyson Fury a ‘mouse’ after meeting him the other day.

Fury had claimed that he would knock out Lewis if the two of them were to fight and recently called him a 'div', but Lewis said the 25-year-old didn’t say anything when the two of them were face to face.

Speaking on BoxNation, Lewis said: "I met Fury the other day and he was quiet as a mouse.

"When he left he started opening his mouth, but when he was with me he was like a mouse.

"I keep thinking why would he call me out? Even if I came back I wouldn’t fight him because he doesn’t have a belt. He is nothing to me and has never seen nothing like me. Who is he?

"He is just a loudmouth and has no respect. Guys with no respect don’t last long in the game."

Fury is due to fight David Haye in Manchester on September 28, in one of the most eagerly anticipated all-British fights in recent times.
