Former heavyweight champion Vitali Klitschko has pulled out of the Ukrainian presidential race.

Klitschko will instead run for mayor of Kiev, as he has decided to back tycoon Petro Poroshenko to avoid splitting the pro-Euro vote in the May 25 elections.

Both men played a key role in months of street protests that led to the ousting of President Victor Yanukovych.

Klitschko’s withdrawal could mean the race is likely to be between Mr. Poroshenko and former Prime Minister Yulla Tymoshenko.

The forthcoming election s are seen as a crucial step in leading Ukraine out of their deepest political crisis since its independence in 1991. AN interim administration is currently in place in Kiev, led by acting President Olexander Turchynov and Prime Minister Arseniy Yatsenyuk.
