Wladimir Klitschko says why he became a UFC fighter

The legendary Ukrainian boxer Vladimir Klitschko said that he could try his hand at mixed martial arts. Vladimir is convinced that to be a MMA fighter harder than a boxer.

At the same time, Klitschko said that would not be a UFC fighter because of back problems.

You will need to be developed in everyone, be a fighter and a boxer. Rounds longer. And it’s much harder than Boxing. It is difficult to remain successful in the UFC, even harder to retain the title, because the sport is very competitive. I have great respect for athletes, and when I see how women are feeling even more respect.

Maybe I could try UFC. I wouldn’t have become a fighter because of some health problems – back and so on, so I couldn’t fight for a long time, although judo when I was young,
– quoted Vladimir Business Insider.
