Vitali Klitschko reckons the only way Anthony Joshua has any chance against Wladimir is if his younger brother falls into old habits of losing focus.

Wladimir Klitschko’s manager says he will NEVER fight Tyson Fury again.

Joshua takes on Klitschko at Wembley this month as he bids to become just the fifth man to beat the former heavyweight king and add the WBA belt to his collection.

But Vitali, a former heavyweight champion himself, is pessimistic about the young challenger’s chances against the skill and power of Wladimir.

‘It’s two Olympic gold medalists, two of the best heavyweights in the world,’ Vitali told


Age: 40
Record: 64-4-KO53

Age: 27
Record: 18-0-KO18

“It’s just huge interest, and I know Wladimir has great skills. He sometimes misses focus in his fights. If Wladimir Klitschko will be focused 100 per cent, Joshua doesn’t have a chance. But everything depends on Wladimir. For Wladimir, age is nothing, 40 years old. He’s got a lot of experience. Klitschko will be 41 when he steps into the ring to face Joshua this month, but he has already said that his age will not be a major factor.”

The Ukrainian hasn’t fought since his first defeat in almost 12 years against Tyson Fury over a year ago.
