WLADIMIR KLITSCHKO has hinted that he might make a sensational return to the ring – but it would cost a whopping £ 75 million to lure him out of retirement

The 44-year-old Ukrainian retired from the sport in August 2017 – three months after a TKO defeat in the 11th Round against Anthony Joshua at Wembley

Klitschko has repeatedly teased a comeback in the past few years, recently dropping another hint that he might return to the ring in a motivational Instagram post

He said, “I only send positivity and prosperity to all of you, especially those who are tragically affected 2020 has beaten and humiliated us all to the core

Although Dr Steelhammer is the wrong side of 40, he believes he can still mix it with the elite of the heavyweight division

Last year he said, “I still have it. Can I fight? Yes for now I am keeping my options open

“There won’t be a comeback to come back and break a jaw it’s making a comeback to break a record

“Is it appealing? I would say yeah, it’s pretty cool George Foreman did it I think he was 45 when he became champion and that’s a pretty cool statement”

In 2019, Klitschko reportedly received a £ 40 million offer from DAZN to lace his gloves again

But according to Vitali, the older brother of the former united heavyweight champion, it will take an incredible £ 75 million offer to get out of retirement

He told the Abendzeitung, “When the news came that a television station had offered Vladimir $ 40 million for a comeback, I called him and asked what was going on

“When I was talking about an $ 80 million offer a few weeks later, I called again and asked,” What’s the situation now? “

“He said, ‘This is not an offer that will change my mind Maybe at $ 100 million I’ll think about it’

“Never say never – and that has not changed at the moment in his status as a boxer retired”
