Vitali’s Retirement Plan
Posted on 09/28/2010

A source with close ties to the Klitschko Brother camp has informed BoxingInsider.com that WBC Heavyweight champion Vitali Klitschko is seriously considering retiring from the boxing ring at the end of 2010. This means the October 16 title defense vs. American Shannon Briggs in Hamburg will very likely be the final fight of the Hall of Fame career of Dr. Iron Fist.

Vitali Klitschko, who turned pro on Nov. 16, 1996 with a second-round KO over American Tony Bradham, has said he wants to step out of the way and let younger brother Wladimir take control of the heavyweight throne.

The 39-year-old Vitali Klitschko has a professional ring record of 40-2 (38 KO’s).
