Frank Lotierzo Talks Wladimir Klitschko Legacy – This Saturday night, April 29th, 41-year-old Wladimir Klitschko will enter the ring at London’s Wembley Stadium to face Anthony Joshua, a man more than a dozen years his junior. The IBF and WBA “Super” world titles are on the line between the two men, but for Klitschko there is a lot more at stake than just a few belts.
Klitschko reigned atop the heavyweight division for more than ten years in what is essentially a young man’s sport. With a sterling 64-4 professional record, more than 50 knockouts, and one of the longest title reigns in heavyweight boxing history Klitschko’s place in boxing’s pantheon is secure. He deserves credit for returning to face Joshua, in that he has not fought since November of 2015 and he could easily have walked away from the sport. Instead, the Ukrainian, who won an Olympic Gold Medal back in 1996, returns to face what many are calling the toughest fight of his professional career.
