Heavyweight Champ Vitali Klitschko Removes Gloves For Menorah Lighting
by Zach Pontz
That guy looks familiar–why, yes, it’s boxing heavyweight champion of the world Vitali Klitschko. You’re probably asking yourself why the pugilist is hanging with a bunch of rabbis: It’s because Ukrainian businessman Raphael Rutman was hosting a Chanukah party and Menorah lighting in Kiev, and Klitschko was invited. The WBC heavyweight champion, who was recently elected to the Ukranian parliament, even took part in lighting the candles.
The new parliamentarian has shown restraint since entering politics. Earlier this month a brawl took place during a parliament session— and fortunately for all involved he remained a bystander.
