Manuel Charr (21-1, 11KOs) is demanding a rematch after losing a fourth round TKO to WBC champion Vitali Klitschko on Saturday night in Moscow, Russia. Charr was defensive at the start and then suffered a knockdown when he opened up. He was cut above his right eye in the fourth round and the ringside doctor stopped the bout after examining the cut. Charr was furious with the stoppage and started shouting at the officials.
"I came to Moscow to fight. I wanted to continue to fight. I was very motivated to fight with Vitali and to win the title. Anyone who knows me can attest to that. I never would have backed down. Vitali is a great champion, I really respect him. But this battle was not won by Vitali. It was won by a doctor. The decision to stop the fight was not my decision. From the moment I started boxing, I became very familiar with the rules of the sport. And I can not figure out how the doctor came out of Klitschko's corner to inspect my eye. I'm positive that he would have at least tried to [stop the bleeding] but the fight was stopped almost immediately," Charr said.
