    What more can he offer?

    Wlad gave a real good go against AJ but it was not enough. He is not getting any younger so will not perform any better than he did last time out.

    Wlad could beat 90% of the heavyweights with the performance he showed against AJ but other than the money and notoriety why would he put his body and legacy on the line?

    Fighting Whyte at Wembley? Daft does nothing for either. Still doing the rounds on twitter etc though

    Non-news as far as I'm concerned. Wlad gave up his timid style to engage AJ. Ironically turned in the type of performance we hadn't seen from him in ages... but in a loss. IF..... IF he were to come back, which he won't, it would probably be to try and revert back to Timid Wlad style, and frankly, I'd rather see him stay retired.

    I think if he came back, he'd be more than competitive with anyone in the rankings, but there is no need for him to return. Maybe he wants the Fury and AJ rematches.

    Probably wants Wilder , maybe Tyson again, but not AJ.

    Wlad pulled out of the rematch, what would have possibly changed his mind about facing AJ.

    I don't think he should come back unless it's for the fake wba title so he can retire on a win... His accuracy with his left hook looks to have suffered greatly over the last few fights, used to be his best weapon too... In sure he'd be very fit and competetive with probably everyone but its been time for him to give it up for a few years now...

    Wladimir Klitschko Says He Won't End Retirement to Fight Dillian Whyte

    Former heavyweight champion Wladimir Klitschko does not plan on coming out of retirement to fight Dillian Whyte, according to Sports Illustrated's Chris Mannix. Klitschko retired in August 2017. His last fight was a loss to Anthony Joshua in April 2017.

    Wladimir Klitschko tells @sinow that there is no truth to the rumors that he could end his nearly two-year retirement to face Dillian Whyte this spring. In a text message, Klitschko calls Whyte chatter "fake news."

    Klitschko retired with a 64–5 career record. The 42-year-old held the world heavyweight championship twice and won a gold medal in the 1996 Summer Olympics.

    Klitschko lost the last two fights of his career. He lost to Tyson Fury by unanimous decision in November 2015 and Anthony Joshua by technical knockout in April 2017.

    The Ukranian fighter was rumored to face Whyte in the spring after a deal fell through for Whyte to face Joshua.

    I dunno about Wlad coming back. It means nothing UNLESS he can score an easy $20 mil on a fight against Joshua, Wilder or Fury. Does not make sense to come back for anyone else as no one else can guarantee that kind of purse.

    Wlad should just stay retired! Period. JMO...

    George foreman came back and look what he achieved.

    Wlad still has a better physique than the majority of heavyweights out there.

    Wlad should return for a few fights and see what happens..he’s not doing it for money he’s doing it for more icing on the cake..

    Wlad was shot for years BEFORE he retired. He can do, and will do NOTHING to help his legacy by returning. He won’t return

    Wlad's not gonna come back for just anybody. He already said no to Dillian Whyte. He also dismissed a rematch with Joshua. Nobody would pay for another Wlad-Fury fight. And I don't think Wlad would step into the ring with Wilder, with visions of Wilder's 12th round bomb on Fury dancing in his head.

    That leaves well..... pretty much nobody.

    The Wlad that fought AJ could beat Wilder but I think that Wlad is gone now. Too old.

    Not only that but he probably thinks.... "the first time in awhile that I get into the ring and go into the offensive and I get knocked out.... screw that.... back to my defensive ways."

    I liked the Wlad that gave Joshua all he could handle before losing, not the Wlad that reigned for 10+ years before that.
