“I love boxing. I love its fans, its challenges and life chances so much. Klitschko vs Joshua 2 is on. I’ll see you at ringside” – that was the message Klitschko had saved in his drafts on Twitter. Klitschko speaking exclusively to IBTimes, Klitschko shared he was wrestling with his own emotions and thoughts as he contemplated the decision to either share that message or the tweet where he officially called time on his future hall-of-fame career.
“It was the most difficult decision,” Klitschko shared. “But I am so happy. You couldn’t know about it before [whether you will be happy with your decision], you know about it later on when your decision is made, a couple of months after whether it was right or wrong. I would say it was right. I did maybe an illogical thing. But I stepped out on my terms. Not any else’s. But my terms. I think my stock went up, not down. And I was surprised that was possible.” ‘Dr Steelhammer’ added.
