He was joined by Ukrainian football legend Andriy Shevchenko to officially take possession of the Champions League trophy following the draw at UEFA’s headquarters in Nyon, Switzerland.
Joshua and the younger of the Klitschko siblings are scheduled to go head to head at Wembley Stadium on Saturday night, with Joshua’s IBF belt and the vacant WBA title on the line
Klitschko’s career has been on hold since losing his IBF, WBA, IBO and WBO belts in a surprising defeat to Tyson Fury in November 2015. Two attempts at a rematch failed because of Fury’s personal problems, leaving the 40-year-old Klitschko in limbo after nearly a decade ruling the heavyweight division
Fury’s camp had already announced the date and venue earlier this month but Klitschko’s management said a few issues still had to be sorted out
The younger Klitschko suffered his first defeat in over 11 years to Fury, who ripped away the WBA, IBF and WBO titles by unanimous decision in Dusseldorf in November
It means that if Klitschko, 42, decides to fight again, he will automatically get a shot at the title upon his return, if he wants one
