Vitali Klitschko will defend his WBC heavyweight title against Manuel Charr on September 8 in Moscow, and the full undercard is also now set. Here's a rundown of what you can see before the main event.
Heavyweights - 12 Rounds
Magomed Abdusalamov (15-0, 15 KO) vs Jameel McCline (41-12-3, 24 KO)
McCline really has nothing left in the tank, especially against younger guys who want to win and try to hit him really hard, so I'm kind of expecting a turtle show here, and an early stoppage.
Super Middleweights - 10 Rounds
Maxim Vlasov (23-1, 12 KO) vs Khoren Gevor (32-8, 17 KO)
Vlasov, 25, only has a loss to Isaac Chilemba on his sheet, and veteran Gevor, 32, has really started to come apart at the seams, losing four of his last five. He never really recovered from an unfortunate, highly debatable loss to Felix Sturm back in 2009, and he last made notable news getting disqualified against Robert Stieglitz in 2011. It wouldn't be any huge upset if Gevor did win here, but it would also require a big reversal of his recent fortunes.
Heavyweights - 10 Rounds
Vyacheslav Glazkov (12-0, 9 KO) vs Konstantin Airich (23-6-2, 17 KO)
Glazkov won a bronze in Beijing in 2008. Airich is really not any good, but I guess he's "dangerous" here, at least on paper, at least if you're willing to fib a little bit. Glazkov has already beaten guys this good, maybe better. Airich is coming off of a wide lose to Odlanier "Tubs" Solis.
Also on the card will be a 10-round featherweight fight between Ayup Arsaev (12-0, 7 KO) and Khavazhy Khatsyhau (8-0, 5 KO), plus a 10-round middleweight fight betwen Andrey Meryasev (10-0, 9 KO) and Muhitdin Rajapbaev (8-2, 5 KO).
