Wladimir Klitschko made a statement regarding the rematch with Anthony Joshua.

Ukrainian heavyweight champion Wladimir Klitschko (64-5, 53 KO’s) spoke about their motivations, life principles, and stated that the money will not be for him the determining point, if he decides to have a rematch with Anthony Joshua (19-0, 19 KO’s).

“My motto in sport was very simple: “Failure is not an option, defeat is not an option.” The message is clear: I always want to win. But now I know, failure is the absolute option. Everyone faces setbacks in his career. If someone argues that it is not so, he or cheating, or from another planet. My successes have raised me, but actually I grew up on his injuries.

Don’t feel like a loser because you’ve lost the fight. None of the defeats I have not gained more than this. It’s amazing how much respect and recognition brought me this fight.

The fight between me and Joshua was organized by K2 Promotions and promoter Joshua Eddie Hearn – Matchroom. Figures I won’t comment. It’s just business, nothing more, nothing less. But money was never the main motivation for me. I just want to win. This is my motivation. Money is only a confirmation of success. If I decide to fight with Joshua, it is not exactly the money will be the determining point in this case,” – said Klitschko.

Earlier, the Russian promoter Andrey Ryabinsky said that Klitschko and Joshua agreed to the rematch.

After that, the promoter of Klitschko announced that Volodymyr has not yet decided whether to hold a rematch with Joshua.
