Happy birthday to Vitali Klitschko. The long-time heavyweight champ and elder Klitschko brother turns 42 years old today. Despite the age, he has shown no signs of slowing down in the ring. The question remains though, will we be seeing him in the squared circle anytime soon, or ever again? If so, how many more fights does he have left in him, and who's a worthy challenger that would get fight fans excited? Klitschko hasn't fought since he met the woefully outclassed Manuel Charr in September 2012. There's nothing in the schedule now for him, either, as he has been pondering and pursuing a political career as opposed to the sweet science.

If David Haye defeats Tyson Fury in their highly anticipated clash, then perhaps we'll see the long rumored, on again, off again fight between Vitali and Haye...
