After Anthony Joshua defeated Wladimir Klitschko in April, the talk of a rematch was wide but that will no longer happen.

The former heavyweight boxing world champion has retired from the sport at age 41, his management said in a statement Thursday.

The Ukrainian Klitschko held various titles in a glorious 21-year career which started as a professional after winning Olympic gold at the 1996 Games in Atlanta.

He was unified champion from 2006 to 2015.

Klitschko’s last fight was a defeat to British star Anthony Joshua in April when he was stopped in the 11th round.

A potential rematch in November with the 27-year-old Joshua will now not take place.
