Wladimir Klitschko refuses to rule out return as he finally addresses comeback rumours

Wladimir Klitschko has finally responded to comeback rumours following an April Fools’ hoax which tricked the boxing world earlier this week.

In recent months it has been reported that ‘Dr Steelhammer’ was in talks with US streaming service DAZN over a potential three-fight deal, and Ukrainian outlet ‘Sport Arena’ took advantage of this to play a prank.

The sports news website declared on April 1 that Klitschko had now agreed to a three-fight $120million comeback and would return on May 25 in Kiev.

It was not until several hours later, after capturing the attention of the entire boxing world, that they admitted their article was an April Fools’ prank.
