Wladimir Klitschko: Want to talk about class act?
By Vitali Shaposhnikov: On February 13, 1999, Wladimir Klitschko (56-3-0) knocked out his opponent Zoran Vijecic (18-2-0) in the very first round. Nowadays, Zoran is deeply ill, suffering from a viscous disease that comes about from damage to the brain and spinal cord. Multiple Sclerosis is just one of the health issues that Zoran is currently dealing with.

Boxing is a beautiful and at the same time brutal sport, with a potential for serious damage around every corner and with every punch. Sadly, Zoran and his family are unable to cover his medical expenses due to financial difficulties, leaving them in a very bad and scary position.
As soon as Wladimir Klitschko had discovered this to be the case, he came to rescue. He has sent three checks in sum of 10,000 Euros each to help his former opponent get his health in order.
