Klitschko coming out of retirement?

BBC Radio 5 live boxing analyst Steve Bunce says there are rumours Wladimir Klitschko could return to the ring in 2019.

The former heavyweight world champion retired from boxing in August 2017, saying “I have achieved everything I dreamed of, and now I want to start my second career after sports".

Bunce believes IBF, WBO and WBA champion Joshua’s next fight won’t take place at Wembley Stadium, and could be replaced by Klitschko coming up against a “big British heavyweight”.

This clip was first broadcast during 5 live Sport, Thursday 10 January 2019.
