Vitali Klitschko Movie Rating: / five
Legendary Ukrainian Heavyweight boxer and World Boxing Council or the WBC Heavyweight Championship holder Vitali Klitschko has not put his title on the line in the last fifteen months and having become the face of the political movement of the opposition in his country, has vacated his title.
And the WBC has paid tribute to his contributions to the sport over the years by appointing him the ‘champion emeritus’ meaning if ever he decided to return to the ring and have a fight again, he would immediately be granted a shot at the title. But from the looks of things, it doesn’t seem it will ever happen and Klitschko is finished with boxing for good.
The older of the two Klitschko brothers stated that he wanted to thank the WBC as well as its president Don Jose Suleiman for the support he has lend them in the fight for democracy in his country. Vitali Klitschko stated that it had always been an honor for him to fight for the WBC and he held the WBC Heavyweight Championship with pride.
He mentioned that the theoretical possibility that the WBC has given him to return to the boxing ring is something that he cannot imagine at the current state.
Vitali went on to add that at this moment, he is fully concentrated in the politics of his country and he feels that the people of his country need him there. He admitted that although he will not be fighting in the ring any time soon, he is certain that his younger brother Wladimir, the unified Heavyweight champion will ensure more sporting success for the country. Vitali Klitschko admitted that he will support him in his efforts the same way as he has been supporting him in his politics for so long as well.
Vitali Klitschko, the former WBC heavyweight champ, is closing in on a contract to end his career with a battle against David Haye. The boxer from Ukraine has won forty one of forty five wins inside the distance while enduring just 2 defeats. Now he is in dialogues with WBC to bypass compulsory challenger Bermane Stiverne.
If he is offered the essential clearance, then he would face David Haye if the man from London defeats Tyson Fury later this month in Manchester. David fought Klitschko’s brother Wladimir for the IBO, IBF, WBO and WBA titles in Hamburg in Germany in 2011’s July, but he lost a consentaneous points decision.
David retired following that defeat, but he made a very successful return previous year when he stopped Dereck Chisora in 5th round at the Upton Park. The thirty two year old Bermondsey man, who has a record of twenty six wins along with twenty four knockouts and only 2 defeats, confronts Fury on 28th September, Saturday at Manchester Arena.
Now Vitali Klitshcko wants to have a brand new career in politics and he would run in the elections in Ukraine after leaving the game. The champ from Kiev told that he thinks that he would box again. His brother showed Haye a good fight with a good result.
Vitali has not lost since Lennox Lewis stopped him in the 6th round of the IBO and WBC title fight at Staples Center in Los Angeles, California, in 2003’s June.
