Wladimir Klitschko will defend the title April 25 and his opponent will be Bryant Jennings. However, in addition to being dedicated to the upcoming match, Klitschko often ponders about the events in the Ukraine.
His brother Vitali already devoted himself to politics and is very active in the political life of the Ukraine, and now Wladimir also spoke about the events in his homeland stressing that the Russian President Vladimir Putin could trigger World War III because of the actions carried out in East Ukraine.
In an interview for a sports magazine „L'Equipe“ Klitschko said that he would warn Putin, f he had the opportunity to meet him, not to do the same mistakes that have taken place in the past.
“I think that the European community is sleeping. Putin is doing what he wants to,” he said. “In boxing we have a saying ‘be aggressive towards the aggressor’. He will not stop there if we do not show him where the limits are. He will continue to march forward.”
“After what happened during the Second World War, you just cannot go ahead and flout international laws. What is happening at the moment could set off a Third World War.”
