Wiki Biography of Vitali Klitschko

Vitali Volodymyrovych Klitschko, popularly known as Dr. Ironfist, is a former Ukrainian boxer, politician, and author who is most known for holding the WBC, WBO, and The Ring Magazine heavyweight belts, as well as serving as Mayor of Kyiv/Kiev, Ukraine.

So, how much money does Klitschko have? It was stated by credible sources in mid-2016 to be $65 million, derived from his long and successful career as a professional boxer, commercial endorsements, and political career.

 

Vitali Klitschko has a net worth of $65 million dollars.

Klitschko is the son of Soviet Air Force Colonel Vladimir and former attendant Nadezhda, and was born in Belovodsk, Soviet Union. In 1985, the family moved to Ukraine, where he continued his education, graduating in 1996 from Ukraine’s Pereyaslav-Khmelnytsky Pedagogical Institute and then pursuing postgraduate studies at Kyiv’s Taras Shevchenko National University, where he received his PhD in 2000.

Klitschko began his amateur career in 1992, and in 1995, he competed in the first World Military Games in Italy, where he won the super heavyweight title. He went on to win the silver medal at the Amateur Boxing Championships after his triumph. He tested positive for steroids in 1996, which disqualified him from competing in the Olympics and ended his amateur career.

Klitschko became a professional boxer in 1996. Early in his career, he had a string of victories, defeating competitors like Julius Francis, Jose Ribalta, and Ismael Youla by KO or TKO. When he won his first WBO heavyweight title against Herbie Hide in 1999, he became a boxing superstar. Unfortunately, he was forced to hand over the title to Chris Byrd after suffering from excruciating agony throughout the bout, which was later diagnosed as a torn rotator cuff.

Klitschko made news once more in 2004 when he won the WBC heavyweight title by defeating Corrie Sanders after eight grueling rounds. He took a break from boxing from 2005 to 2007, but returned in October 2008 to reclaim his WBC Heavyweight title after defeating Samuel Peter. His great boxing career made him a well-known figure and significantly increased his net worth until 2013, when he decided to hang up his gloves after 45 wins in 47 fights.

Klitschko’s other source of income, outside from fighting, has been product sponsorships, including McFit, Telekom, Mercedes, and Hugo Boss. He also owns his own company, KMG, which is in charge of managing and organizing all of his professional fights. Klitschko and his brother Wladimir Klitschko published “Our Fitness. Simple Secrets of Champions” in 2003, which became an instant bestseller and enhanced Klitschko’s net worth.

Klitschko is currently the Mayor of Kyiv, Ukraine, as well as the Director of the Kyiv City State Administration. Klitschko has been actively involved in Ukrainian politics since 2005, with an aim to fight corruption and increase government openness.

Klitschko has been married to Natalia Egorova, a former model and athlete, since 1996, and the couple has three children together.
