Wladimir Klitschko drops very strong comeback hint on anniversary of Anthony Joshua defeat
Wladimir Klitschko has teased fans with a serious comeback hint exactly two years on from his last fight.
On April 29, 2017, the former heavyweight champion suffered an eleventh-round knockout defeat to Anthony Joshua in a fight for the ages at Wembley Stadium.
After being put on the canvas in round five, Klitschko got up and returned the favour, dropping AJ in the sixth.
However, with not long remaining in the bout, the Brit summoned an impressive second wind and took the Ukrainian out.
Despite being on the verge of accepting a rematch, Klitschko retired from boxing after the loss, making it his final fight… or so it seemed.
Two years to the day later, Klitschko posted on social media: “Although, I didn’t win the titles on April 29th 2017, for me, it was one of my best days in my long boxing career (so far).
“Thanks Anthony Joshua for being the perfect opponent and part of my obsession to become a champion again.”
The use of the words “so far” in the 43-year-old’s message appears to be a clear indication that he is plotting a return.
In recent months, Klitschko has repeatedly been linked with a multi-million dollar deal to join US streaming service DAZN and make a sensational comeback in pursuit of becoming a legendary three-time heavyweight king.
