Vitali Klitschko Eyes 2014 Return, Presidential Run

WBC heavyweight champion Vitali Klitschko (45-2, 41KOs), 40-years-old, says he is poised to make an announcement about his next fight and when it's going to happen. Vitali's mandatory challenger is Bermane Stiverne.
At a special press conference at the WBC's Convention in Bangkok, Thailand, sitting beside Executive Secretary Mauricio Sulaiman, Vitali praised President Jose Sulaiman and said everyone's thoughts are with him, wishing him a speedy recovery from heart surgery.
Vitali's injured right hand is looking much better. The swelling which was very evident when he visited the WBC offices some weeks ago, has now noticeably subsided. Based on his comments, Vitali appears likely to defend his title next year.
Vitali also announced to everyone that he plans to run for the Presidency of the Ukraine at the beginning of 2015, in a determind bid to improve his homeland.

He said: "Seventy percent of the citizens of our country believe it has developed in the wrong direction. We have huge problems. We need reforms in a similar fashion to Poland. It's our way to make ourselves into a European country.
"Alone you can't be a champion or a leader. You need a great team. Work with the best to be the best. That's why I'm not alone. We have a great team. In politics, I work with the best economists, the best in marketing experts and the best in political science to be the best team. With our strong team, we can make significant changes in our country. We have huge potential. The question is just when we can use that potential."

[QUOTE=MisterHardtop;13908072]I think this will be Vitali's final year in boxing. He has had a long and fruitful career at the top and is ready to go out of the sport, his next and final opponent will probably be the winner…
