VITALI: WLADIMIR WILL WIN IF HE IS FOCUSED

Vitali Klitschko reveals what he thinks is going to happen in Joshua-Klitschko fight.


The fight was announced soon after Joshua defeated Eric Molina effortlessly in three rounds two weeks ago and the notion of the upcoming star taking on a legend of the game has got almost everyone talking.

In spite of boasting an outstanding record of 64 wins from 68 bouts, Klitschko actually goes into the fight as the underdog based on the almost all the bookies. And even though he might not enjoy much support among the 80,000+ spectator in attendance on the night, the Ukrainian nonetheless has the support of his big brother.

Klitschko was just as lethal as his brother in the ring during his 17-year professional boxing career before he hung up the gloves to join politics in 2013.

He is currently the Mayor of Kiev but still follows his former career closely and of course when queried how he saw his brother’s upcoming fight panning out, there was obviously only going to be one response.

“What will happen? No one knows since it is sport, let’s see what will happen but I know it is between two Olympic Gold medalists, two of the greatest heavyweights in the World,” Vitali informed FightHype.com.

“I know Wladimir possesses some great skills. He at times misses focus for the fight. If perhaps Wladimir Klitschko will be concentrated 100%, Joshua does not have a chance.”

While 2016 was a busy year that contains three significant world title fights for Joshua, his more experienced challengers has not been in the ring for more than 12 months.

Wladimir was expected to return earlier this year for a rematch with Tyson Fury, but following two postponements the fight was cancelled, and Fury was stripped of his WBO belt. And the 40-year-old cannot afford to exhibit any symptoms of ring rust when he comes in person with Joshua if he is to make a winning comeback.
