FORMER World Heavyweight Champ Lennox Lewis threw a few punches when he arrived in East London for a boxing 'master class' at a City workers' gym.
Lennox was holding a one-hour session yesterday for 25 members of the Real Fight Club in Shoreditch run for City company bosses who like to keep fit in their lunch hour.
One club member, financier Simon Russell, said: "I can't believe we were getting training with Lennox Lewis and first-hand advice into the bargain! It was a dream come true for any boxing fan!"
The masterclass at the club off Great Eastern Street was in support of Kids' Company and Angus Lawson Memorial Trust charities.
