Klitschko auctions off robe containing Joshua prediction USB stick for $215,000
Former world heavyweight champion Wladimir Klitschko auctioned the robe from his final career fight with Anthony Joshua back in April, raising money for charity in the process.
The 41 year-old sold the robe, containing a USB prediction filmed before his loss to Joshua at Wembley Stadium for a whopping $215,000 or £160,000.
Klitschko revealed his intentions for the attire at the press conference for the fight and promised to add a clause to the sale so that only the successful bidder knew the details featured on the USB.
The Ukrainian has now made good on his previous goal and will help good causes through his Klitschko Foundation.
“£160K=$215K were raised in London at #TheCharge2 by auctioning this robe (incl my prediction on a USB stick) that I was wearing at my very last boxing match vs @anthonyfjoshua @wembleystadium. All funds will go to #KlitschkoFoundation projects. Thank you guys!???? #soliver” tweeted a beaming Klitschko on Thursday.
Now retired, Klitschko has been linked to a potential comeback against Tyson Fury after the Briton served a two-year ban on the back of their November 2015 clash.
Fury, 29, is yet to single out Klitschko himself and looks more likely to face the likes of Shannon Briggs or David Price for his comeback in the spring.
