And there were talks for the two to meet in the ring with Vince McMahon even going to the Nevada Athletic Commission for sanctioning.

But according to Dave Meltzer in the Wrestling Observer Newsletter, Lewis turned it down after finding out about Lesnar’s real grappling experience.

The former undisputed heavyweight king did open up about the negotiations in a 2015 interview with TSN’s Off The Record.

He revealed he was offered £5m but claimed he had to wear gloves while Lesnar did not.

Asked if he considered the offer, Lewis said: “Very seriously, until they said he wasn’t wearing gloves.

“They wanted to put me in with gloves on.”

It is not clear whether the match would have been scripted or a legitimate fight.

Lewis went onto retire from boxing in 2004 after defeating Vitali Klitschko a year prior.
