“Now, this is a time where I can reveal never seen before footage and it is going to bring you back into the time when I was boxing, and into that moment.
“Footage is amazing in how it can do that, and I am ready to show that and speak about the times and what happened in my life.
“I’m also going to have celebrity friends here, Russell Peters, the comedian is going to be there.
“There will be loads of people, including boxers that fought me before, Vitali Klitschko will be there along with a number of boxers from Britain.”
During his stay in London, Lewis is renting a car from Saxton 4x4, who are based in Chelmsford, and the 53-year-old is delighted with the vehicle he’s got.
“I borrowed a Range Rover Vogue. It’s a car that I drive all the time, I’m basically a professional with Range Rovers!” he added.
“I love Range Rovers, they suit me, it is the only car for me really. They are practically made for me, and I enjoy driving it!”
