Vitali Klitschko to retire after two or three more fights – coach

BERLIN, (Reuters) – World Boxing Council heavyweight  champion Vitali Klitschko, who  faces Polish challenger Tomasz  Adamek on Saturday, will fight two or three more bouts before  retiring, his coach Fritz Sdunek said yesterday.

“Vitali will have two or three fights, I do not think he  will have more,” Sdunek told the German Die Welt newspaper.

Sdunek said the 40-year-old Ukraine fighter will have no  problems against Adamek despite the challenger’s home crowd  advantage in Wroclaw.

“Vitali to lose? Never. Mentally and physically he is so  strong that absolutely nothing can go wrong there,” long-time  Klitschko coach Sdunek said.

Vitali’s brother Vladimir beat Britain’s David Haye on a  unanimous points decision in July to add the WBA heavyweight  title to his three other belts and complete his family’s  domination of the division. They hold the WBA, WBC, WBO, IBF and  IBO belts between them.
