Leader of the Ukrainian opposition, Vitali Klitschko, has confirmed to ITV's James Mates that he is "very likely to stand for President".

Standing at a towering 6'7" (2.01m), Klitschko is somewhat better known internationally for his history as a multiple worldheavyweight title holding boxer.

Famed for his huge reach and nicknamed "Dr. Ironfist", Klitschko has only ever taken two losses in a 47 fight career.

And with an all-time second best knockout-to-fight ratio of 87.23 per cent, his likely electoral opponent and favourite for the Ukrainian presidency, Yulia Tymoshenko, will have her work cut out for her if Klitschko does run.

Klitschko hasn't limited himself to just the ring, having completed a doctoral thesis on "Talent and Sponsorship in Sports" and boasting an impressive business career, organising many fight events himself.
