Lennox Lewis has seemingly tried to end a dispute with current WBC heavyweight champion Deontay Wilder on Twitter following their recent public spat. 

The war of words began when 'the Bronze Bomber' recently caused a stir having said he would 'kick the hell out of 1986 Mike Tyson'. 

Lewis was quick to defend his former opponent, while Tyson also stating in a podcast, in no uncertain terms, that Wilder 'talks a lot of s**'.

The former three-time world champion continued on Twitter, saying, ''I just heard @BronzeBomber said he would destroy a young @MikeTyson.

''My thoughts are that it’s easy to talk until u actually get in the ring.

''I like Wilder but he’s never been in there with someone that ferocious who truly wants to break his ribs with every punch. I don’t see it!"

It's perhaps no surprise Lewis took offence to Wilder's claims, with the Brit was one of the select few who got the better of Tyson, albeit when 'Kid Dynamite' was at the back-end of his stellar career. 

Afterwards, Wilder responded by claiming that Lewis and Tyson are holding back the new generation of world-level heavyweights.


Nevertheless, Lewis is keen to see the growing dispute put to bed posted a new tweet on the matter on Friday. 

''There is no fued. There is no hate. There is no jealousy,'' he tweeted. 

''Me and @MikeTyson are fans and spectators. The HW division is more exciting because of @BronzeBomber, @anthonyfjoshua and @Tyson_Fury.

''Sort it out. Don’t let the media get to your head.''

It's clear that Lewis deems the three mentioned above as the best heavyweights in the world.

Interestingly, though, there is no mention of New Zealander and WBO champion Joseph Parker, whom Anthony Joshua fights in a unification bout in Cardiff on March 31st.
