Wladimir Klitschko Teases Sensational Comeback After Bizarrely Calling Out Joshua, Fury And Wilder

Wladimir Klitschko Teases Sensational Comeback After Bizarrely Calling Out Joshua, Fury And Wilder

Boxing legend Wladimir Klitschko appeared to drop a teasing comeback by calling out Anthony Joshua, Tyson Fury and Deontay Wilder.

The 43-year-old Ukrainian star announced his retirement in 2017 after his stunning defeat to Joshua at Wembley.

But Klitschko sent fight fans on social media into overdrive with three separate tweets that he sent out.

'Dr Steelhammer' said he wants to 'entertain' his followers and asked fans to like tweets calling for fights with either Joshua, Fury or Wilder.

A rematch with Brit superstar Fury proved to be the most popular at the time of this writing, amassing over 10,000 likes from fans.

Klitschko vs Wilder came a distant second with 3,800 likes, while the Joshua rematch is in third place with 3,200 likes.

The Ukrainian dominated the boxing world as champion before Fury dethroned him in a stunning upset in 2015.

But their rematch fell through after Fury started his battle with mental health and vacated the titles he had won from Klitschko.

Klitschko returned in 2017 to fight 'AJ' for the IBF, WBA (Super) and IBO heavyweight titles at Wembley.

And the former unified champ also knocked down 'AJ' in the sixth round of their epic clash.

However, Joshua secured a sensational victory as he stopped Klitschko in the 11th round.

Klitschko ruled out a rematch with 'AJ' after he announced his retirement from boxing.

"I have achieved everything I dreamed of, and now I want to start my second career after sports," he said at the time.
