Manuel Charr To Face Yakup Saglam on Feb. 22nd

By Per Ake Persson

The Diamond Boy, heavyweight Manuel Charr, 22-1, will defend the WBC Silver Int´l title against Yakup Saglam, 28-1, on February 22 in Galati, Romania, on EC Box Promotions big show there.
Saglam, inactive since April of 11, is a big, strong heavyweight with a fine looking but inflated record and suffered his sole loss against novice Michael Wallisch.
Charr is of course looking to stay busy while waiting for a showdown with David Haye or a rematch with WBC king Vitali Klitschko.

Charr has done nothing... he's dreaming looking to fight Haye at this stage. This bout certainly won't improve his bargaining power.
