Wladimir Klitschko Is Eyeing Up Rematches With Tyson Fury And Anthony Joshua

Wladimir Klitschko Is Eyeing Up Rematches With Tyson Fury And Anthony Joshua

Wladimir Klitschko's potential return to boxing has taken an interesting twist after reports suggest that he would sign a three-fight deal with DAZN.

According to The Ring's Mike Coppinger, the 42-year-old Ukrainian wants two of his fights to be against Tyson Fury and Anthony Joshua.

It is reported that the first match would be an exhibition match in Germany, which would allow the mighty Dr Steelhammer to shed any ring rust that he might be feeling.

Following on from that, the former WBA (Super), IBF, WBO and IBO Champion has his eyes set on rematches with both Brits.

Journalist Steve Bunce sent a shockwave throughout the boxing community after he told BBC Radio 5 Live boxing podcast that Klitschko would be making his comeback.

"I still fancy Joshua fights [Jarrell] Miller in America," he said. "I think either the April date gets pushed back or something else goes on there. I'm hearing all sorts of stuff about a fight that might be... Can I drop it?

"Wladimir Klitschko's coming back, he's gonna fight again and I'm hearing him linked with a big British heavyweight.

"It's not Fury and it's not Joshua, and I'm hearing that could be the fight that we see there [Wembley Stadium on April 13]."

However, Klitschko later came out to dismiss the initial reports that he would be returning to boxing.

"I'm all about challenges in life and I do really feel that I 'still got it,'" he said.

"Recently, many of you contacted me willing to see me making a comeback to the ring this April and I'm thankful to y'all for that. However, I need to call such speculation an early April Fools' Day joke."

Following on from his defeat to Fury in 2015, Klitschko fought his final fight against AJ in 2017 at Wembley Stadium and lost in the 11th round by TKO.

The Gypsy King, however, will most likely fight Deontay Wilder first after the WBC ordered a rematch between the two.

Should Fury or AJ take up a rematch against Klitschko?

Let us know in the comments.
