About The Event

Manuel Charr enters this fight with a 31-4 record that includes 17 knockouts. Charr has won seven of his last 10 fights and is coming off a November win over Alexander Ustinov. Charr hasn’t lost since his 2015 bout with Mairis Briedis and will be defending his belt for the first time. Charr is 33 years old, stands at 6’3” and has an orthodox stance. Charr does a good job of keeping his hands up in a defensive position and works his jab well.

Charr isn’t the most aggressive boxer in the world, but he does have some pop and has stopped four of his last eight victories. You’d just like to see Charr let his hands go more often and bring the fight to his opponent rather than the other way around. The downside is that Charr has been on the losing side of nearly all of his big fights and isn’t the hardest boxer in the world to hit. Charr leaves himself open often defensively and has been knocked out in three of his four career losses. Charr has fought most of his career in Germany, his current residence.
