Vitali Klitschko vs. Manuel Charr Should Not Be a Career Closing Fight

According to Bild.de, it seems as though Vitali Klitschko may have already decided on his next opponent.

The older Klitschko brother has recently stated that his boxing career is nearing a conclusion, and that his impending retirement is on the horizon. Well let’s hope that he doesn’t close his career out with a fight against his next challenger, the 27-year-old unbeaten heavyweight Manuel Charr (21-0-0).

Charr is not a pushover, and his record is undoubtedly impressive just by looking at it. Still, his resume is far from encouraging. Beating Danny Williams or Owen Beck is simply not enough to beat Vitali and definitely doesn’t permit Charr to promise to “flatten Vitali Klitschko.”

I have watched some of Charr’s bouts, and despite the fact that I think he is a very talented athlete, he is perfectly styled to be demolished by Vitali. Financially, any fight in Europe that has the name Klitschko attached to it will sell out, but as far as the fans go, this better not be his last fight.

Win or lose, Vitali has to close the show with a bang.
