Former world champion in superheavy weight Vladimir Klichko (64-5, 53 KO’s) received a new tempting offer.
In early March it became known that the streaming platform “DAZN” suggested Klitschko 40 million contract for three fights. Now the “Sport Arena” claims that members of the online service has improved its offer to 80 million in U.S. currency.
In the case of a transaction with “DAZN” Klitschko in 2019 can hold three fights, and the return of Ukrainians will be held in late may or early June.
According to the plan “DAZN”, the first fight, Klitschko will hold in Germany against top-10 rankings. The second match will be a rematch with Tyson fury, which the Ukrainians lost on points in November 2015. Finally, the third fight Vladimir will give Anthony Joshua – it will also be revenge for the defeat by knockout in April 2017.
In addition to guaranteed 80 million fee Ukrainians can count on a percentage of sales of television rights for the rematches with Joshua and fury. If Klitschko wins three fights, it will also be the Ambassador of the company “DAZN”.
Earlier Vladimir Klitschko has hinted that he may return to the ring for the record of George foreman, who in 1987, defeated Michael Murer, and at age 45 became the oldest world champion in the heavyweight division.
