-=- A hard upbringing for hard men -=-
Wladimir Klitschko was born in Semipalatinsk which was originally part of the SSR, he was raised in a military family and had a lot of expectations to come up to, he was great at sports but found freedom in the energy he would get in the ring just like his older brother. He went to Poland to be coached in the Gwardia Warszawa boxing club. He would often demolish all other competition pretty early in the game and would often win most of the amateur titles along with his older brother. His amateur record was pretty impressive with a record of 134 wins to only 6 losses.

Wladimir jumped into the pro circuit with the Universum Box – Promotion, he was training with Fritz Sdunek and had an undefeated streak for 24 matches. Ross Puritty was one of his hardest challenges and his first real defeat after turning pro. He also had a 15 match win streak when he was defending his WBO Championship

-=- The brothers of destruction -=-
Together Wladimir and his older brother have broken a lot of streaks and won several matches making a name for themselves as the best boxing brothers, they collectively have a large fan following in Russia and Germany andare endorsed by many brands to piggyback on their fame.

A German Broadcast company paid the brothers a contract of $4Million in 2012 to play the previous matches as part of repeat telecast for the future. It was a deal that benefitted the Klitschko brothers very well.

-=- Plans of settling down -=-
Wladimir Klitschko and his fiancé announced earlier this year that they will be expecting their first child, and it was already news that the couple were searching for a home which will probably speed up with the baby on the way, even though Wladimir has a home in California he wanted to have a home in the Ukraine too.

Wladimir Klitschko is a simple and hardworking individual the thing that makes him a world class fighter is his passion, and we are sure that there is a lot more where that came from.
