The 41-year-old made the announcement in a video where he confirmed his decision, ‘I deliberately took a few weeks to make my decision, to make sure I had enough distance from the fight at Wembley Stadium. As an amateur and a professional boxer, I have achieved everything I dreamed of, and now I want to start my second career after sports’.
Now he has tweeted that his heart is at peace as he hands over to Nigerian born boxer, Anthony Joshua.
In a tweet this afternoon, Klitschko says ‘My HEART is at PEACE as I pass the torch to Anthony Joshua the next generation. Good luck little bro, I’m proud of you!’.
