LEWIS AWAITING OK FROM HOLYFIELD FOR BOUT

Lennox Lewis put his name on a contract Monday for a $50 million heavyweight unification fight. Now it's up to Evander Holyfield.

The proposed bout would take place in Las Vegas at an undetermined site on April 25, according to Lewis' promoter, Panos Eliades.

Holyfield, the WBA and IBF champion, will get at least $30 million and Lewis, the WBC champ, at least $20 million.

"I'm happy the deal has been done," Lewis said. "But, like all things in boxing, I'll believe it's happening when Holyfield and I are standing face to face in the ring in Las Vegas."
