Vitali Klitschko likely to retire after fight with undefeated Manuel Charr in September

Posted: June 6, 2012 in Uncategorized

Heavyweight champion Vitali Klitschko will defend his WBC belt against Germany’s Manuel Charr in Kiev on September 1 – in what is expected to be the Ukrainian’s final contest of his professional career.

The 27-year-old German remains undefeated following 21 straight wins and stands at 6ft 4ins.

He stopped England’s very own Danny Williams in the seventh round almost a year ago.

Kilitschko (44 wins and two losses) is expected to go full-time into politics in the Ukraine soon after, with parliamentary elections set for October 28.

It will be the Ukrainian’s second fight in his country of birth, and the first since 1998 when he knocked out Italian Francesco Spinelli.

A crowd of 70,000 is expected to watch Klitschko’s farewell fight – who overcame a stern test from England’s Dereck Chisora earlier this year.

Chisora has his own fight to plan for as he prepares to face Wladimir Klitschko victim David Haye at Upton Park on July 14.
