Klitschko Tired of Repeated Brawls Between Politicians

By Ruslan Chikov

WBC heavyweight champion Vitali Klitschko, who is also a Ukrainian opposition leader under the political party UDAR ("punch" in Ukrainian), is tired of the continued fist fights among the deputies during legislative meetings. Vitali has been caught in the middle of more than a few of these unexpected rumbles - and they are now happening on a regular basis.

"We've all gone to parliament to work with our heads. A few individuals are not very good at working with their heads, so they resort to fisticuffs. As a professional [boxer], I can tell you what using your fists are good for," said Klitschko. "Moreover, this is an ugly trend: everyone saw how our people's deputies - rather than engage in legislative work, would rather work with their fists. They have to use their knowledge and intelligence, not their fists."

A television company actually offered a hefty sum of money to air these meetings - if Vitali got involved in the brawling.
