Klitschko Comeback?

It hasn't been confirmed, but there are various sources online and also testimony from Dillian Whyte that Wladimir Klitschko is considering a comeback a 3 fight deal with RAZN.

One of these fights would be a warm-up  , while the other two would be rematches against Tyson Fury and Anthony Joshua.

Ring Magazine writer Mike Coppinger shared the news on social media:

Sources: Former heavyweight champion Wladimir Klitschko was discussing a three-fight deal with DAZN that would end his retirement. First fight would be a tune-up, followed by rematches with Tyson Fury and Anthony Joshua, in that order

This news from Coppinger sort of goes against what Klitschko himself tweeted a few days ago:

I’m all about challenges in life and I do really feel that I “still got it”💪. Recently many of you contacted me willing to see me making a comeback to the ring this April and I’m thankful to y’all for that. However, I need to call such speculation an early April fool’s day joke

But, the original speculation was that Wladimir would fight Whyte.  Possibly Wladimir was only addressing this comeback and not potentially others.   If Wladimir does decide to comeback he will make a welcome addition to the current heavyweight mix.
