Klitschko’s boxing promoter Tom Loeffler has said his boxer is 50-50 on taking up the rematch option against Joshua.
Joshua beat Klitschko in a stunning heavyweight encounter, back in April and is waiting if the Ukraine boxer will fancy another match.
Eddie Hearn says the rematch is at the top of the list, but has lined up a fight against Kubrat Pulev in case it doesn’t happen.
Loeffler, speaking to Sky Sports News HQ on Monday, said: “Wladimir hasn’t made a decision.
“If he retires on that fight, he had such a great run in the heavyweight division there’ll be no better way to go out. That was just a tremendous fight
“I really think it’s 50-50. Every time I talk to him it’s almost like he’s torn both ways. We’ll naturally support him either way he decides. If he decides to take the rematch that’s one the fans will look forward to”
