Wladimir Klitschko packs a mighty punch.

The 6′6″, 246-lb Ukrainian boxer and former world heavyweight champion is a muscular beast with over 50 knockouts in his career.

Klitschko tried pull off another one when he took on British boxer and heavyweight champion Anthony Joshua in their title fight at Wembley Stadium in April 2017, but he lost on a knockout.

Now, after a long and successful career, Klitschko has decided to hang up his gloves. There was some expectation that Klitschko would fight Joshua in a rematch, but the fighter has opted to step away.

“I have achieved everything I dreamed of, and now I want to start my second career after sports,” said Klitschko, according to the BBC.

Klitschko battled incredibly hard—he even knocked Joshua to the mat in the sixth round—but it wasn’t enough to win. Klitschko did all he could for 11 rounds and had plenty of respect for Joshua after the fight too (even after he got hit by a wicked uppercut.)

Klitschko is a goliath in the sport, and just like Joshua—as well as celebrities like Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson, Jean-Claude Van Damme, Arnold Schwarzenegger, Dolph Lundgren, and Aquaman badass Jason Momoa—the boxer likes to share his workouts on social media.
