On July 14th, 2012 Manuel Charr attended the post fight press conference for the fight between David Haye and Dereck Chisora. Haye had won the grudge match via 5th round TKO and Charr wanted a shot at Haye providing that he won his September bout with Vitali Klitschko.
Charr received a cut during the fight from a punch which ignited a spark in him and he picked up the action right away. The fight ended up being called due to the cut resulting in a 4th round TKO. Charr was defiant and wanted to continue; protesting the stoppage and felt short changed that the fight was not left in the hands of the fighters.
After the Klitschko fight, Charr fought twice wining those bouts with a combined total of less than 3 rounds.
Charr was left in search of an opponent. The challenge that he placed upon Haye seemed to be a possibility but in boxing nothing is concrete until fight night. When Russian fighter Alexander Dimitrenko priced himself out of a fight with Haye, the door opened for Charr to get the fight that he wanted.
On June 29th, Manuel Charr will get his chance for redemption by fighting David Haye. Should he beat Haye, Charr would put himself up for a rematch with Vitali Klitschko or even a shot against his younger brother Wladimir Klitschko. With the fight Charr put up against Vitali after the cut, one should come to expect an even better, more entertaining fight against a fighter like David Haye.
