Vitali Klitschko’s wife says `time has come` for star to retire from boxing
Johannesburg – World heavyweight boxing champion Vitali Klitschko’s wife has urged her husband to hang up his gloves and retire.
According to Sport24, the 42-year-old Klitschko holds the WBC heavyweight belt, while younger brother Wladimir is the WBA, IBF, WBO and IBO champion and between them the Ukrainian brothers, who are based in Hamburg, hold all the major titles.
Having last lost more than a decade ago to Britain’s Lennox Lewis, ‘Dr Ironfist’ has earned knockouts in 41 of his 45 victories during 47 professional fights with just two defeats, the report said.
Natalia Klitschko said that her husband must make the decision alone but he has achieved everything in his career, right at the top, so she would find it nice if he stopped.
