Charr-Airich collide Friday


In his first fight since unsuccessfully challenging WBC heavyweight champion Vitali Klitschko in September, “Diamond Boy” Manuel Charr starts his campaign for a possible second title fight on Friday when he takes on hard-hitting Konstantin Airich for the WBC Baltic and WBC Mediterranean heavyweight belts at the Maritim Hotel in Cologne, Germany.

Charr posed as “Santa Claus” at today’s press conference and gave his Airich a green hat. “Airich is ‘The Grinch’ who wants to steal Christmas and all my presents,” said Charr. “But I won’t let him get away with that. I have to stop him in order to get another shot at the world title. This is what I live and fight for.”

Airich stated, “I have been waiting for a chance to fight Manuel Charr for a long time. I like and respect Manuel as a fighter and as a person but he chose the wrong guy for this fight. I came to Cologne to ruin his Christmas and that’s what I will do Friday night.”
