He poured cold water on the rumours earlier in the year but Wladimir Klitschko is once again being linked to a lucrative offer to return to the boxing ring, two years after his last fight.

According to reports in Germany, streaming giant DAZN have made a renewed offer to tempt him back. The offer would see him pocket £60 million for three fights and could lead to a rematch with WBA, IBF and WBO world heavyweight champion Anthony Joshua, the last man to beat him.

The first offer for Klitschko to return was apparently in the region of £30 million and coincided with talk of the great Ukrainian fighting another Brit, Dillian Whyte. This rumour, however, was shot own almost immediately by the 42-year-old.
