Charr Challenges Haye at Presser, David Laughs it Off

By Phil D. Jay

West Ham, Upton Park - Undefeated German heavyweight Manuel Charr seized an opportunity to gain himself a little publicity by turning up at the post-fight press conference for David Haye’s victory over Dereck Chisora and challenging tonight’s winner.

Charr, 27, who faces Vitali Klitschko in September in what could be the champion’s final bout, promised to end the 40 year-old’s career before declaring to the waiting media that he is coming for Haye when he takes the green belt.

“Vitali is finished,” stated Charr. “Then I will come for the best fighter in England, David Haye!

“I will become the world champion and then me and you can fight David,” he added as he squared up to Haye and shook his hand.

Haye looks visibly stunned by the gesture and even asked “Who are you” to the bemused fighter’s face as Charr then turned to Chisora and stated: “Well done ‘Del Boy,” before walking off to chuckles from the press.

The ‘Diamond Boy’ had been present commentating for German TV, although his noisy appearance at the press conference was clearly a publicity stunt as Charr continued to shout for the next few minutes in a failed attempt to gain some notoriety.
