BOXING: Lennox prepares.

LENNOX Lewis has been hit with elbows, butted and punched low by his sparring partners to prepare himself for his showdown with Mike Tyson on June 8 in Memphis.

Each day for the last two weeks Lewis has encouraged his sparring partners to lose their cool and go berserk during daily sessions. "They have hit me low and used their elbows and it's not been easy to stay calm but I know I will have to when I'm in the ring with Tyson," said Lewis.

"Illegal punches are dangerous and it is not the way I have been brought up to fight, but if he is going to break rules then I will do it back."
