Klitschko’s Promoter On A Potential Road Back

Whispers seem to persist that Wladimir Klitschko may eye a return to the ring. And while the former unified world champion has claimed it to be “fake news,” his promoter has a road map in-mind if he made a return to the ring.

“There is an example in front of us represented by another Klitschko in Wladimir’s older brother, Vitali, who chose to come back following a four-year absence and was quite successful. He regained his throne and left the sport while still on top,” Alexander Krassyuk about the elder Klitschko brother, who returned from a four year retirement in 2008, regaining the WBC title from Samuel Peter.

“I think Wladimir can do the same. He is in great shape; his mind is bright. He is training every day. It is not difficult for him to return to the sport.”

“Look, I would be happy to see Wladimir announce his return to the sport. I think that would be such a major happening in boxing,” Krassyuk said of a return of the 42-year old. “He is a legend with a vibrant personality, with such magnitude. And the heavyweight division is now a different weight class compared to its value 3 or 4 years ago. Today, there is excitement and intrigue in the division. Fights with such excitement involved always raise the bar to a whole new level in boxing.”
