Member of the International Boxing Hall of Fame Vitali Klitschko claimed responsibility for the defeat of his brother Wladimir to Anthony Joshua (22-0, 21 KOs). Vitali was in Wladimir’s corner that night.
Former heavyweight champion, and now the mayor of Kiev, the capital of Ukraine, Vitali Klitschko, spoke about his attitude to the possible return to the ring of his brother Wladimir. Earlier it was announced about Klitschko's win-win combination: for his birthday DAZN offered him a “gift” of 80 million dollars.
Former heavyweight champion Vitali Klitschko told about his emotions after the defeat of his brother Wladimir to Anthony Joshua: “I had a great desire to get into the ring after the bout, which was associated with Klitschko and about which, of course, there was a lot of talk, the bout between Wladimir and Anthony Joshua. There was a desire to tear off Anthony's head.”
Former heavyweight champion Vitali Klitschko admitted that his younger brother Wladimir does not have the strongest chin, but he learned how to effectively minimize the risks from this.
Vitali and Wladimir Klitschko were listed in the Guinness Book of Records as brothers-champions, who had the most battles for two. “For me, this award is a surprise. Our record with Wladimir is the record of all those who supported the Klitschko brothers, who supported us and Ukraine. After all, we always defended the honor of our country,” said Vitali.
