Klitschko Auctions Off Robe From Joshua Fight, With USB Prediction

WLADIMIR KLITSCHKO HAS raised £160,000 [$215,000] for charity by auctioning the boxing robe he wore in his last competitive bout against Anthony Joshua, along with a USB stick containing his prediction for the fight.

Klitschko retired earlier this year at the age of 41, following his defeat to Joshua in a world title fight in April.

The memory stick was sewn into the garment when he entered the ring at the Wembley arena.

The reigning champion Joshua defeated the Ukranian in an 11th round stoppage to add the WBA, IBO titles to his IBF belt.

Klitschko retired with a fight record of 64 wins (53 by KO) and five losses.

He held the second-longest reign as heavyweight champion, making 18 defences during a title reign spanning nine and a half years.

Klitschko held the auction in the Royal Horticultural Society Halls in London, with all proceeds going to projects supported by the Klitschko Foundation for children.

The buyer of the robe is unknown.
