“What happened is life. It happens. It was a battle of gladiators, when the best two fighters in the world met in the ring. Vladimir dominated, had all the chances to win. But happened to be so, – said Vitaly Klitschko. – We can ask the key question: what next? Today Vladimir himself gave the answer in the near future will make a statement. I can’t decide for him. I will support my brother in any decision. Frankly I want to say: for me personally it is much easier to be in the ring than standing as second in a duel,” said Klitschko.
In his opinion, Vladimir needed to act more aggressively. And Joshua showed himself worthy. “Volodya should have been more aggressive to act. He asked and allowed Joshua to attack. At the moment it is difficult to analyze, but, in my opinion, it was necessary to act more aggressively and not let Joshua come to mind. It would be for the benefit of Vladimir – said Vitaly Klitschko. – I was surprised that Joshua is such good condition. I thought that he will not be able to be active. But we saw in the championship rounds, he showed himself worthy,” – said Klitschko.
