The biggest mouth in boxing since the days of the Louisville Lip, David Haye, returns to the ring and formally begins his campaign for another world title when he meets Manuel Charr on June 29th in Manchester. It isn't the world title fight that Haye promised, or even a fight that might move Haye closer to that fight, but one thing is certain: unless he's against a Klitschko, Haye isn't a boring guy to watch.
Manuel Charr (23-1, 13 KOs)
6'3 1/2" tall; approx. 240 lbs; 28 years old
Born in Beirut and growing up in Germany, Manuel Charr came over to boxing from martial arts and Muay-Thai, under the tutelage of Ulli Wegner. His main claim to fame is getting stopped in four last year by Vitali Klitschko, and the only name win on his resume is beating up a badly faded Danny Williams. The Diamond Boy showed up in the wake of Haye vs. Chisora to call out the Hayemaker, which possibly explains what he is doing fighting him now.
