Vitali Klitschko Video Ranking: 5 / 5
Vitali Klitschko was one of those fighters who were virtually unbeatable. It is a shame that no one noticed that.
The awkward style that he had, the long reach and the granite chin are a few features that put him in the class of heavyweights that very few have achieved till date. He was number 2 and just behind Rocky Marciano with 87.23% knockout ratio. For the years to come, this will remain as the highest in the history of the division.

Kiev mayor and former world Heavyweight champion Vitali Klitschko has denounced anti-Semitism and the Vladimir Putin led Russian Federation during a speech in front of business leaders in the Israeli capital of Tel Aviv this past week.
The reformist politician was in Tel Aviv to court new investors for investment in the war torn region which has been suffering from severe inflation and an insurgency backed by Moscow in the industrially rich eastern region of Ukraine.
The elder of the two Klitschko brothers, Vitali was at the forefront of the street revolution that toppled the Russia backed government in Ukraine last year, accusing the Russian leaders of being afraid of the economic success of Kiev.
This revolution ultimately led to the annexation of Crimea by Russia and a spurt of separatist activities in the pro-Russian eastern region of the country.
An pointing towards the nations that signed the former Warsaw Pact, the likes of Poland and the Czech Republic as states that should be the models for modernisation and Westernisation, Vitali Klitschko assured the corporate executives gathered for the conference that corruption can be stemmed and the country is ready to make all the necessary changes.
The former all conquering Heavyweight boxer said that the civil war the country finds itself torn by at the moment would never have happened had it not been for the monetary and weapons support from Russia. Vitali Klitschko also said that nobody in Ukraine is bothered by what language someone speaks, be it Ukrainian or Russian and the fact that Ukrainians hate Russians is nothing but propaganda from Russia.
The 42 year old went on to add that even he doesn’t hate Russia, his mother hails from there and he has no bitterness for his motherland but things can’t keep going as it is now.
