According to the HCLU report, the 45-year-old, who bid farewell to the ring in 2017, said his motivations are old and drawn by the example of George Foreman. The high-end American fist, who has sat on the throne more than once in the sport’s royal class, left the box at the age of 48 after several dips and resumptions in 1997 after becoming the oldest world heavyweight champion in boxing history at the age of 48. 46 and 169 a day.
Klicsko, who lives in the United States – as the record holder in his weight category – was a world champion for 4,382 days. In November 2015, he knocked out Britain’s Tyson Fury by scoring, losing his combined league belts and at the same time his undefeated ten-year streak. He played his last match in London on April 29, 2017, when he suffered a surprise defeat from Britain’s Anthony Joshua. Currently, Fury and Joshua still hold the world championship titles for the largest professional heavyweight organizations.
Wladimir Klisko – who was an Olympic champion as an amateur – won 64 of 69 professional matches and was five times fewer.
