Heavyweight Manuel “Diamond Boy” Charr and his team are in Moscow for Friday’s showdown at the Luzhniki Arena with former WBA heavyweight champion Alexander Povetkin . The fighters met for the first time Monday at the pre-fight press conference.

Manuel Charr: Alexander Povetkin will not stop me on my way to the world title. I very grateful to him, his team and especially promoter Andrey Ryabinsky that they have given me this chance. Unfortunately hardly anyone dares to fight me. Potvetkin isn’t afraid, but he will bitterly regret it. I will defeat him.

Alexander Povetkin: I take my hat off to Manuel Charr for coming here to Moscow to face me in the ring. He’s a good boxer and has proved that he has heart. But against my quality he has no chance. This is a great fight, but for me it’s just a transitional stage on the road to even more important fights.

A special guest at the fight is former heavyweight champion Evander Holyfield.
