Boxer-turned-politician Vitaly Klitschko pulled out of the race for Ukrainian president on Saturday, throwing his weight instead behind billionaire confectionary oligarch Petro Poroshenko, Reuters reports. Klitschko's withdrawal sets up a May 25 contest between the man known as the ‘Chocolate King' and Ukraine's former prime minister, Yulia Tymoshenko. Poroshenko, 48, confirmed his candidacy late on Friday.
