Manuel Charr Targets The Klitschkos, Rips Their Choices

By Ruslan Chikov

Undefeated heavyweight contender Manuel Charr (20-0, 11KOs) is pushing for a shot at the Klitschko brothers. Charr, who fights out of Germany, would like to get a crack at Vitali, the WBC champion, in the near future. If he's able to beat Vitali, he would then target younger brother Wladimir for the WBO/IBO/WBA/IBF titles. Charr is not impressed with the Klitschkos' recent run of opponents.

"What are these Klitschkos doing? They are just boxing with cruiserweights - it's just a shame. Shame on Wladimir [for fighting Jean Marc Mormeck]. Thank God, I want to fight with the best - and that is Vitali. After I beat him, then I'll take away the titles from Wladimir. I feel sick with their choice of opponents. Vitali, I'm ready for this battle," Charr said.

Charr isn't even a top 25 fighter yet. He couldn't even convince 3 judges that he beat Zack Page a year ago, and hasn't really stepped up his competition since then. Whether or not Mormeck is a worthy challenger for…
