Heavyweight Boxing Champion Wladimir Klitschko is erg te spreken over het MMA. Recent liet de jongste van de Klitschko broers in een interview weten dat hij gaat beginnen met het beoefenen van deze populaire sport.

“To be honest I didn’t really like [MMA] before. But when I was watching it, I got into the style of MMA and I think I have a lot of respect for MMA fighters. It’s a very tough sport… You have to be so multi-functional, you have to be a wrestler, you have to be a good kickboxer, you have to be a good boxer, you have to be with good condition.”
 
“I want to try the fitness. Just get in an MMA gym and just practice certain things. I used to wrestle, and I did judo when I was younger. As training, as fitness, perfect. Fighting, no.”

Wanneer we Klitschko in de Octagon mogen bewonderen is nog maar de vraag. Zijn volgende bokswedstrijd staat gepland op 3 maart tegen de Fransman Jean-Marc Mormeck. Dit evenement vindt plaats in de it Arena in Düsseldorf.. Hier verdedigt Klitschko zijn WBA (Super), WBO, IBF, IBO & The Ring Heavyweight titles.
