Former 1996 Olympic gold medalist, lineal, WBA, WBO, IBF and IBO heavyweight champion announces his retirement from the sport of boxing.
Wladimir and his brother Vitali ruled the heavyweight division for almost ten years 2006-2015.
My favorite Wladimir match was when he avenge his lost to Lamon Brewster.
The last two fights that Wladimir was in they were against Tyson Fury and Anthony Joshua. Unfortunately, Wladimir lost to both guys. Before facing Fury, Wladimir was the WBA, WBO, IBF, IBO and lineal heavyweight champion.
So, now that Wladimir announces his retirement from boxing his rematch from Anthony Joshua is off. I want to congratulate Wladimir on his successful boxing career. Wladimir is a first ballot hall of famer.
All the best to Wladimir.
