While Vitali Klitschko has clarified that he will not be retiring soon, his manager Bernd Boente believes it is time for the Ukrainian to take responsibility of his country. According to Boente, it is more important for Vitali to grab a political seat in order to ensure democracy and freedom from corruption in his country than fight David Haye.
“If Vitali gets a role after the elections where he can make a difference, I suppose that would be the end of his career,” said Boente in an interview to Sport Bild, a German news organisation. “As a friend and manager, that’s what I would advise. The fight for democracy and against corruption is more important than a fight against David Haye.”
