Vitali Klitschko Has Been Named “Eternal World Heavyweight Champion”
Though out of action since 2012, Klitschko was this week honoured with arguably the most bizarre of titles by the World Boxing Council. Officially, this title is untold, but we suppose it means forever?
Speaking at the ceremony, Klitschko said: “Nothing is impossible. I was born in the Soviet Union, a big country where professional boxing was forbidden. I would watch Mike Tyson when he became the youngest world heavyweight champion in 1986, and I said to my friends, ‘Do you know what boys? One day I will be fighting guys like that. One day I will be world heavyweight champion.“
However, the former professional boxer is currently a Ukrainian politician serving as Mayor of Kiev and head of the Kiev City State Administration, having held both offices since June 2014.
