By Tunj Faleye


Former boxing heavyweight champion Wladimir Klitschko has retired from boxing at the age of 41.

This put an end to a potential rematch between him and 27-year-old  British star Anthony Joshua who stopped him in the 11th round in London in April.

According to his management which stated this on Thursday, this decision to retire from boxing became necessary after proper consideration.

The Ukrainian Klitschko held various titles in a glorious 21-year career which started as a professional after winning Olympic gold at the 1996 Games in Atlanta.

The glorious moment in his career was when he became the unified champion 2006-2015.
