Klitschko Bro's close to signing new 5-fight, €15m TV deal!

According to reports from Germany, television network RTL are close to sealing a new television deal with heavyweight fan-favourites Wladimir and Vitali Klitschko. 

The new agreement means that either brother will receive 3 million euros for each of their next five fights. According to RTL, it doesn't matter which brother fights at each time as long as it's a Klitschko in the ring. It's no secret that the boxing scene in Germany revolves around the Klitschko brothers and that is where the money is. Sturm, Abraham, Pulev, they are all relatively big draws but are not even on the scale compared to the Klitschko's when it comes to making money and bringing in crowds of fans.

Younger brother Wladimir, 36, is set to defend his WBO, IBO, IBF & WBA heavyweight titles against Mariusz Wach on November 10th in Hamburg, Germany, but Vitali, 41, has not yet specified when he will be returning to the ring.
