Lewis: Up there in the top five, with Muhammad Ali, Joe Louis, George Foreman and Rocky Marciano.
SI: You've appeared in Ocean's Eleven and Arli$$. Is it fun playing yourself?
Lewis: Yeah. It's the greatest role ever.
SI: Does sex before a fight really sap a boxer's strength?
Lewis: Yes, the day before. Give the legs a rest.
SI: Mike Tyson once said he wanted to eat your children. Do you think he would actually do it?
Lewis: Well, he actually tried. He bit me on the thigh in New York at a press conference. That was pretty close to my willy, so when he's talking about eating my kids, that's what he's talking about.
SI: In your only fight with Tyson you knocked him out. Where does that victory rank among your fights?
Lewis: It ranks high as far as street cred because I used to go to a barber store to get a haircut, and it was always about Tyson. Only until they saw me in the ring with him did they say it's about Lennox.
SI: Is there still a public demand for Tyson to box?
