Former two-time WBC heavyweight champion Vitali Klitschko showed his support for ATO veterans by taking the 22 push-up challenge outside offices in Kiev.
Klitschko, now serving as Mayor, proved he’s still in decent shape at the age of 45 having been retired from boxing since 2012.
Speaking on the matter, Vitali said: “Today I joined the 22 Push-up Challenge to support ATO veterans. I got this call from Kyiv patrol police. This is an action in support of Ukrainian soldiers, veterans who have returned from the east of Ukraine. Its aim is to draw attention to the problems of civilian life adaptation of military men,” Kyiv Mayor said.
“I am convinced that every Ukrainian must be strong and healthy to protect himself, his family and his country,” Klitschko added.
The Mayor of Kiev then passed the honor on to brother Wladimir, who is currently in early preparations to face Anthony Joshua on April 29.
‘Dr. Steelhammer’ aims to win back the world titles he lost to Tyson Fury in November 2015 and signal yet another reign for the Klitschko family.
