Wladimir Klitschko retires from boxing, ends Anthony Joshua's rematch

Heavyweight boxer, Wladimir Klitschko has decided to retire from boxing, killing any hopes of a potential rematch with heavyweight king Anthony Joshua.


The Ukrainian was defeated by Joshua in a heavyweight blockbuster back in April and the Brit was eyeing another colossal bout in Las Vegas on November 11, but the 41-year-old released a video to confirm that he has decided to call time on his 21-year career.

The heavyweight legend hangs up his gloves with the stellar record of 64-5-0, after he ruled the division throughout the 2000s, holding the IBF, WBA, WBO and IBO titles.

Klitschko burst onto the scene when he claimed gold in the 1996 Olympics in the super-heavyweight class. He claimed his first professional belt just two years later, knocking out Marcus McIntyre, and set about making his mark in the new millennium.
