KLITSCHKO TO RETURN FROM RETIREMENT FOR AJ BOUT

The brother of Wladimir Klitschko, Vitali, who is retired, is threatening to make a U-turn for Anthony Joshua’s fight. The Briton stopped Wladimir in the eleventh round in April. The loss forced the revered Ukrainian boxer to retire instead of fighting an eagerly anticipated rematch.

Vitali reportedly wants to avenge his brother’s loss by returning from retirement to fight AJ. The 46-year old has been into politics and has not fought since 2012. Despite his sojourn in politics, he has always made out time to support his former champ brother. He was at his brother’s corner when AJ defeated him.

“I miss boxing very much. Boxing will always stay in my heart my whole life. A fight against Joshua is my best wish. I have a feeling I can do it better, I have to fight Joshua and bring back the belt to the family.

“Wladimir was for a long time the best heavyweight in the world. Joshua stopped him and this means he is the best one. But that was just a lucky fight, a lucky day for Joshua,” Vitali was reported to have said on FightHubTV.

AJ stopped Wladimir in front of 90,000 fans at Wembley. If Vitali truly decides to fight AJ at the same venue, based on his status and the context of the fight, it would be a major money spinner.

Wladimir is the first person to floor Joshua in his pro career. Vitali hinted that he told his brother to take things easy after he floored Joshua in the sixth round.

“I expect a big muscled athlete to not recover, I was surprised, Joshua recovered so fast and stopped Wladimir. If I didn’t tell him to stop, then Wladimir might have knocked him out, six or maybe round number seven.”

ELLENBERGER’S BIZARRE LOSS TO JORGE MASVIDAL

The fight between Jake Ellenberger (31-12 MMA, 10-8 UFC) and Jorge Masvidal (31-11 MMA, 8-4 UFC) took a dramatic turn when Ellenberger mistakenly got his foot trapped in the fence of the cage.


Masvidal saw the opening and quickly delivered a TKO in the first round.

The event, which took place on 4 December at Pearl at Palms Casino Resort in Las Vegas, was the main highlight of the day’s TUF 24 Finale event, considering the unusual way the fight ended.

The contest was called at the 4:05 mark of the opening frame, and the combatant had quite a fuss about the possibility of a win given the circumstance. Even the well-experienced referee Herb Dean was uncertain of the decision to take, and had to call time out to ask if there could be another possible outcome given the circumstance of the win. Unfortunately, there was no provision for the sort of incident in the rules, and Masvidal was declared the victor.

After the fight a dazzled Ellenberger stood in the octagon to recount the incident and voice out his thoughts about the unlucky fight. Read more »
