Nominees for this year's Boxing Hall of Fame ballot have been announced. Floyd Mayweather Jr., Wladimir Klitschko, Miguel Cotto, Andre Ward and James Toney were among the 30 candidates for the Hall of Fame for the first time.
Tom Leffler believes that 44-year-old Wladimir Klitschko could return to the ring and reclaim the title of the heavyweight champion. The former promoter of the Ukrainian, however, emphasizes that he does not know if Doctor Steel Hammer will ever decide to hold an official fight as a pro again.
Wladimir Klitschko and Antonio Tarver may be the next two who, according to the media, want to return to the ring. Former world champions posted photos from the training gym on social media, where Evander Holyfield is trying to restore his former shape.
Former world heavyweight champion Wladimir Klitschko (64-5, 53 KOs) most likely will not return to the ring, although he continues to repeat that if he does return, it’s only for the sake of breaking the record of George Foreman, the oldest world heavyweight champion in history. It is interesting that Foreman himself opposes such a return.
Sky Sports TV channel in its profile on Twitter reminded fragment recording of the program The Gloves Are Off with the participation of Tyson Fury and Wladimir Klitschko in 2015, where the "King of the Gypsies" remembers being together with the world champion in the sauna during one of training camps in Austria.
