Charr: I'm Going To Be Rocky, Vitali Will Be Drago

By Ruslan Chikov

Undefeated contender Manuel Charr (21-0, 11 KOs) is looking to replay a famous motion picture battle, straight from the Rocky series. Charr wants to play the role of heavy underdog Rocky Balboa and he says WBC heavyweight champion Vitali Klitschko (44-2, 40 KOs) will play the role of Ivan Drago, the unbeatable Soviet machine.

They will clash on September 8th at the Olympisky Sport Hall in Moscow, Russia. If Klitschko wins the upcoming election to become the mayor of Kiev, the fight with Charr is likely his last ring appearance.

"Rocky was the underdog like me. Ivan Drago was like Klitschko, having the perfect conditions. Still, I'm going to surprise everyone in Moscow. So far very few have believed in me. But look at who I beat - Page, Carrion, Bidenko, Nascimento. I shook [Nikolai] Valuev in sparring [handled] Povetkin in three rounds [of sparring]. I believe in myself and I will use the chance that I've received. Anyone who does not believe in himself has already lost," Charr explained to Figo Sport.

[QUOTE=yoz;12302926]Of course, Manuel. If Vitali doesn't put this BUM away within 6 rounds, he really should hang-up his gloves.[/QUOTE] I don't know about 6, Vitali tends to sleep. But he's definitely putting him away.
