Manuel Charr's Coach on The Vitali Defeat, 12/1 Return

By Luke Furman

Trainer Youssef Ramadan gave his assessment of Manuel Charr's stoppage loss to WBC heavyweight champion Vitali Klitschko. Charr (21-1, 11KOs) was stopped in the fourth round after suffering a cut above his right eyebrow. The cut wasn't bad, but it was bleeding heavily.

"Frankly speaking, [the cut] was not bad enough to stop [the fight]. I've seen cuts that were 1000 times worse. Charr's cut was quite small, but there was a lot of blood. TV viewers probably thought - 'my God, a huge cut, stop it' - but for me it certainly wasn't a reason to stop the fight. A good example - Vitali's fight with Lennox Lewis. Vitali had was a big cut, but he was at least allowed to continue fighting. Manuel should have been allowed to win. If he was, I'm sure the fight would be a very good fight, and he would have had a chance to win. I'm not saying he would win 100%, but the fight would be interesting," he said.

He says if the shoe was on the other foot the fight would have never been stopped.

"No. Never. Not for anything in life. I do not believe [they would stop it if Vitali was cut]. After all, RTL is Vitali and Vitali is RTL - they would never do that."

He says there is some talk about a return on December 1 in Düsseldorf - possibly against former WBA champion Ruslan Chagaev.

vitali was beating charr pretty handily & had already dropped him. early stoppage but i couldn't see charr going the distance regardless if they let it continue. chagaev vs charr would be a good fight.

[QUOTE=southpaw_07;12584129]I doubt Charr would have won or even get close to doing so if the fight would have continued. It's good though that he will be fighting Chagaev next instead of facing another Zack Page kinda opponent. I would like…

Charr vs. Chagaev is an interesting fight. I don't like Charr, if they fight I hope Ruslan decisively defeats him.

[QUOTE=jhon123;12583697]this is exactly what david said about the charr/vitali situation, if u watch the fight closely when the referee stops the action he takes charr to vitalis corner where there was a doctor assigned by vitali who stopped the fight…

Charr showed more aggression after the fight than he did in all 4 rounds :lol1: Love how he goes mad and walks up on Vitali who just has that serial killer glare going on. TKO4
