Vitali Klitschko Likely Has Only One Fight Left

By Mike Coppinger

LOS ANGELES -- It's hardly comes as a surprise, but K2 Promotions managing director Tom Loeffler told BoxingScene.com that Vitali Klitschko likely has just one fight left.

That fight will take place in 2014, but it's undetermined against whom, though it might be his mandatory WBC title defense against Bermane Stiverne.

Loeffler was on hand for the West Coast news conference to promote Gennady Golovkin's Nov. 2 bout against Curtis Stevens.

Klitschko (45-2, 41KOs) is 42 and has been battling injuries. Combined with his aspiration to be president of his native Ukraine, one farewell fight makes all the sense in the world.

[QUOTE=JAB5239;13721391][COLOR="Navy"]Just retire already. Most are sick of the posturing and fighting of sub par opponents. It's to late to improve your resume enough to be considered great. Concentrate on the political thing. I have a hard time ever seeing him…

[QUOTE=House of Stone;13721553]not correct ... you can say what you will about why the fight didn't happen 4 or 5 years ago but lately there is only one side avoiding it. I'd rather see the winner of haye Fury fight…
