Hayden Panettiere and Wladimir Klitschko
At a reported 6-foot-6, did you know that Wladimir Klitschko isn’t the tallest former heavyweight boxer in the world? That title belongs to Gogea Mitu, who fought twice and won both times by knockout. Wladimir successfully defended his title 17 times before losing in two consecutive fights and ultimately retiring.
He has had an on-again-off-again relationship with model and singer Hayden Panettiere, who most people know from NBC’s Heroes. The couple met in 2009 during a book launch party for a mutual friend. They split in 2011 citing distance as being the primary reason. They’d resume their relationship and announce their engagement in 2013, but five years later, they broke up without exchanging wedding vows.
