Charr: I Have The Heart of a Lion, I'll Tear Klitschko Apart
By Ruslan Chikov
Unbeaten contender Manuel Charr (21-0, 11KOs) is very confident as he continues training for his upcoming fight with WBC heavyweight champion Vitali Klitschko (44-2, 40KOs) on September 8th in Moscow, Russia. Charr has a lot of respect for Klitschko but he doesn't see himself losing under any scenario. The crowd will be entirely on Vitali's side, although Charr feels that his Siberian roots may garner a few ringside supporters.
"He is a very strong and experienced opponent, a great champion and a terrific athlete, but I am confident of getting a victory over him. I have a lion's heart, I'll tear Klitschko apart! I've never known the bitterness of defeat. None of my opponents could even knock me down. I am confident in my abilities," Charr said.
"This defense will be his last. Before me he will see his defeat. I'm 27, and Vitali is 40. Yes, I'm faster than him. Speed and agility is on my side. But Klitschko has been involved in a lot of fights, and he has a lot of experience - which is an indisputable advantage. With him I have to be very careful and never for a moment can I allow myself to relax."

[QUOTE=BostonGuy;12429776]In some ways though, it is a Rocky movie. The highly regarded and virtually unbeatable (WBC) Champion is giving a title shot to a long odds unknown contender. Can fans not respect that?[/QUOTE] The sequel has gotten old and tiresome.…Comment by BostonGuy on 08-15-2012
[QUOTE=paulf;12428709]Shannon Briggs had the heart of a lion. So did Dereck Chisora. Arreola, too. He gave it all he had. This isn't a Rocky movie, you need a lot more than heart. Vitali.... must break you.[/QUOTE] In some ways though,…Post a Comment/View More User Comments (39)
