eSports Boxing Club (ESBC) is reportedly in talks with three-time world heavyweight champion, Lennox Lewis. Steel City Interactive may be seeking to add him to its anticipated boxing game. Per Lennox Lewis’ official Twitter account, Lewis’ party is “Working on it. Almost there.” Accordingly, Lewis could potentially join an impressive ESBC roster of over 150 fighters.
Details On ESBC and Lennox Lewis
Lewis competed from 1989 to 2003 with a record of 41 wins and 2 losses. 32 wins came by way of knockout. He is an orthodox fighter from London, England, and is nicknamed “The Lion.” Continuing, the former undisputed heavyweight champion fought Evander Holyfield two times and defeated Mike Tyson in 2002. The six-foot-five boxer is regarded as one of the best heavyweight boxers of all time.
Previously, Lewis made appearances for sports gaming in the Fight Night series. If the former champion does make an appearance in ESBC, Ten24 Studios will take the lead role in scanning him into the game; Ten24 is a development studio specializing in face and body scans. Moreover, ESBC’s reported intent to add Lewis is aligned with SCI’s track record of signing global boxing icons for the upcoming fight title.
ESBC’s roster is headlined by Saúl “Canelo” Álvarez, Muhammad Ali, and Joe Frazier. The full roster can be found here. If ESBC can add Lennox Lewis to the roster, the legitimacy of the upcoming indie boxing game will only grow.
