Lennox Lewis says his next fight may be a rematch with Mike Tyson in June.

Talks for a proposed bout in April between Lewis and Vitali Klitschko have collapsed, Judd Burnstein, Lewis' attorney, said Friday.

Burnstein said Lewis will watch how Tyson does Feb. 22 against Clifford Etienne in Memphis.

"Now that there will be no April fight, Lennox has a contractual obligation to consider Mike Tyson as his June opponent and looks forward to seeing how Tyson performs in his February fight against Clifford Etienne," Burnstein said.

Lewis stopped Tyson in the eighth round of their much-anticipated heavyweight championship fight June 8, and neither fighter has fought since. Both fighters had a rematch clause in their contracts for that fight.
