Wladimir Klitschko has a lot on his plate, but it looks like he is handling his affairs well. His wife, Hayden Panettiere, went back to rehab to receive treatment for her postpartum depression, leaving him with baby Kaya. He also had his rematch with Tyson Fury pushed back due to the fact that the British fighter injured himself badly.
A few weeks ago, his wife announced on Twitter that she would be going back to get more help so that she can overcome her depression.
Hayden Panettiere wrote on her Twitter, “The postpartum depression I have been experiencing has impacted every aspect of my life. Rather than stay stuck due to unhealthy coping mechanisms I have chosen to take time to reflect holistically on my health and life. Wish me luck!”
She expressed some concerns about coming out about her depression.
“I was always so terrified that people weren’t going to accept me,” the 26-year-old actress said in the interview with Yahoo! Style. “I finally just went, I’m tired of living afraid. I’m tired of living in fear of what people are going to think, so, you know, I’m just going to put it all out there on the table and I’m not going to worry about the judgment.”
But it looks like she found support in her husband!
With her away in rehab, that means that Wladimir Klitschko is all by himself to take care of his baby daughter and to train for the upcoming, but delayed fight with Tyson Fury.
But it looks like concentrating on his training has been the way he has been able to get through all the drama in his life.
The fight against Tyson Fury had to be pushed back, leaving Wladimir a little bit in the cold. Although this is not ideal for the Ukrainian fighter, he had a lot of unforeseen things happen in his life recently, and he can only get better at dealing with them.
“World heavyweight No 1 Tyson Fury was forced to postpone his rematch with Wladimir Klitschko yesterday on two weeks’ notice on the advice of his physician after spraining an ankle injury, pulling out of his defence of two of world title belts and The Ring Magazine strap,” reports the Telegraph. “The contest was scheduled for the Manchester Arena on July 9, with 14,000 tickets believed to have been sold for the event which was to be aired on BoxNation TV.”
The word on the street is that Tyson injured his right ankle pretty badly while he was training.
“Ten days ago, while running in the Lake District, I went over on my ankle and sprained it,” the British fighter said on his Instagram. “I’ve been to the hospital, had X-rays, scans and all that stuff. They said it’s not broken but it’s badly sprained and I should keep off it for six to seven weeks.”
The doctors said, “It had not improved enough for the 6ft 9ins tall, 18st heavyweight to fight.”
But Hayden Panettiere’s husband is not losing sight of the glory he can take back.
“Fury is injured and rematch postponed. This just means I’ll get my belt a few weeks later. #NowMoreThanEver,” he tweeted.
While these two are rivals in the ring, they do share something in common – their love for their family. Recently, the heavyweight boxing champion posted a darling picture with his loved ones.
Wladimir Klitschko also doesn’t fall behind in having his family on social media. While Hayden posts more frequently about their baby than he does, he must be enjoying the attention that his beautiful young family is getting.
Do you think Wladimir Klitschko is doing too much to concentrate on beating Tyson Fury in the next fight? Do you think his wife Hayden Panettiere’s condition is affecting the way he trains? Let us know your thoughts in the comments below.
