Vitali Klitschko (44-2, 40 KOs) and Manuel Charr (21-0, 11 KOs), participated today in a press conference and talked about their upcoming clash next Saturday. WBC World Heavyweight Champion Klitschko and his contender Charr will face off at the Olimpiyskiy arena in Moscow. Charr isn’t being given any chance by most fans and spectators (see the betting odds on the right sidebar), however, he certainly seems to be confident in himself.
Take a look at some quotes and photos from the event, as well as a video of the staredown between the two fighters, and a longer video of the entire presser.
“Manuel Charr is one of the toughest opponents right now. He is young, aggressive and strong. I am sure it will be a real battle on Saturday. My training camp was very good and I am in good shape and can’t wait to step into the ring again.”
“I know Vitali’s trainer Fritz Sdunek and I worked with him. Therefore I know how he has prepared Vitali. I have my tactics against Vitali and I am 1000 per cent sure that my tactics will be better. I will be the new WBC world heavyweight champion.”
Klitschko vs. Charr takes place this Saturday, September 8. Surprisingly, HBO will be televising the fight — maybe with intentions of snagging a Vitali Klitschko vs. David Haye fight, if they feel like that is taking place next.
