Vitali Klitschko's Trainer Feels He Will Fight Once Again

By Ruslan Chikov

WBC heavyweight champion Vitali Klitschko (45-2, 41KOs) may still continue his career, according to the boxer's coach Fritz Zdunek. Klitschko has not come out to the ring since September of last year when he stopped Manuel Charr in four rounds. Vitali's mandatory is Canadian puncher Bermane Stiverne (23-1-1, 20KOs). Vitali has yet to make an official decision on his future. The 41-year-old fighter is heavily involved in politics in Ukraine. 

"I can not say definitely that Vitali will return to the ring, or when. Everything will depend on his political activities. In the next two or three weeks, he will make a final decision," said Zdunek. "Last week, I spoke to him on the phone and he told me - 'do not worry, I am already exercising 90 minutes a day.' I don't think that we've heard the last word from Vitali when it comes to boxing."
