Klitschko “At Peace” Over Career Decision
Wladimir Klitschko is at peace with the thought of never stepping inside a ring again.
The former unified world heavyweight champion has not fought since his 2017 loss to now former unified titlist, Anthony Joshua, and has been rumored for most of 2019 to be planning a massive comeback.
Rumors of offers from both Showtime and DAZN have been out there, yet Klitschko has kept mum with the exception of an April Fools joke he pulled on April 1st.
“I’m at peace with my decision to stop boxing and switch to another career,” Klitschko told Sun Sport.
“I’ve never won so much when losing,” Klitschko said of his loss to Joshua.
“I have many victories but what I learned after the fight at Wembley is more important than any success. I used to think failure wasn’t an option. Today, I know that passionate defeat is an option.”
While Klitschko exercised his rematch clause against Joshua, he’d double back on that to focus on retirement, and other business ventures.
“My focus shifted to my second career. Today, my battlefields are different,” Klitschko said.
