WLADIMIR KLITSCHKO planned a surprise boxing comeback to become the oldest heavyweight champion ever - until Russia invaded Ukraine.

After losing 11 rounds at Wembley to Anthony Joshua 32, Klitschko, Klitschko, retired in 2017.



Wladimir Klitschko was defeated by Tyson Fury in 2015.

This was the exact same place Tyson Fury, who beat the Ukrainian in 2015, knocked out Dillian Youte (34), with a brutal uppercut on April.

Klitschko (46), considered inviting Fury (33) to a rematch after their fight in 2015.

He admitted that he faces a much bigger battle in his homeland.

Klitschko spoke out in an exclusive interview on TalkTV with Piers Morgan: "I was thinking that I should tweet Tyson Fury -- 'Last Dance?'

FISTS OFFURY

Wladimir Klitschko claims he is in the 'biggest battle of my life' against Putin

"Since he wanted to retire, and we were supposed have this rematch. It was impossible for me to do it, as my mind was in a completely different place.

Klitschko is interested in the 1994 record George Foreman established.

Foreman, now at 73, retired initially in 1977 at age 28, but returned to the ring ten-years later.

At 45, the American became the oldest heavyweight champion and knocked out Michael Moorer.

Klitschko is currently in a position for breaking that record, but has been fighting an even bigger battle for his country during Russia's invasion.

In February, he signed up for the Ukraine's Reserve Army and bravely enlisted in the army.

The courageous ex-boxing champion confessed that he was willing to die for his country during the Russian war.

Morgan was told by Klitschko that he asked the question "when Russian forces were at the outskirts of the city."

"If I wasn't ready for it, then I would have gone. Kyiv, a city of almost five million people, is empty.

"You could hear the blasts constantly, because there were fights in the outskirts. You must [consider this] while you are in Kyiv or Ukraine."
