Wladimir Klitschko

Volodymyr Volodymyrovych Klichko (Ukrainian: Володимир Володимирович Кличко, [ʋɔlɔˈdɪmɪr klɪtʃˈkɔ]; English: /ˈvlædɨmɪər ˈklɪtʃkoʊ/, German: Wladimir Klitschko; born 25 March 1976) is a Ukrainian heavyweight boxer. Wladimir is the IBF, IBO, WBO and Ring Magazine Champion. His older brother Vitali Klitschko is the current WBC champion. Wladimir is the longest reigning Heavyweight Champion in history for the IBF, WBO & IBO Heavyweight Titles, both in measurements of defenses and time. He is also currently rated by Boxrec as the number three best pound for pound boxer in the world. Since 2005, Klitschko has been the dominant force in the heavyweight division, defeating a majority of the top heavyweights in the rankings. When Klitschko won the IBF title against Chris Byrd there were four separate heavyweight champions. Since then he has unified the IBF and WBO belts and defeated the WBA champion in recess.
