Vitali Klitschko Reveals That He Won't Be Returning to Boxing




According to reports, former WBC Heavyweight champion Vitali Klitschko has no plans of returning to the world of boxing.

Klitschko, who is currently 42 years old, has been very prominent in recent months due to the escalating political crisis in the Ukraine. According to Klitschko, he is going to be devoting his life to politics and even has aspirations of running for President of the Ukraine.

These political aspirations and devotion to his country, Klitschko says, have left him unable to properly train, which is why he is ruling out a return to the boxing ring. As a matter of fact, Klitschko says, he doesn't even have enough time to take vacations with his family.

Klitschko's last fight took place against Manuel Charr in September of 2012. Klitschko easily defeated Charr, knocking him down in the second round before the referee stopped the fight in the fourth.

As of the time of his last fight, Klitschko had been in the midst of a long 13 fight winning streak that included wins over Dereck Chisora and Shannon Briggs.

The lone blemishes on Klitschko's 45-2-0 lifetime record as a professional came against Lennox Lewis (June of 2003) and Chris Byrd (April of 2000).

Vitali Klitschko enjoyed a very long and distinguished boxing career that included numerous title fights and big paydays. We wish Klitschko all the best in his political career.
