Vladimir Klitschko is looking for an opponent who can give him a significant challenge.

The Klitschko brothers have been dominating the heavyweight division for years.

While it seems that retirement will be on the horizon for 41-year-old Vitali Klitschko relatively soon, 36-year-old Wladimir Klitschko should remain a dominant fighter for several more years.
