Vitali Klitschko and Manuel Charr are set for Saturday's fight in Moscow.
[ Fight Preview: Klitschko vs Charr ]
Klitschko (44-2, 40 KO) weighed in at 248½, which is up a bit from the last two fights for the 41-year-old champion, but really more a return to his normal weights from previous bouts, where he was usually coming in between 247 and the low 250s.
Charr (21-0, 11 KO) weighed 241¾, close to his average weight over his career. He's weighed as high as 250 and as low as 233 in previous outings.
HBO will have tape delay coverage of Klitschko vs Charr tomorrow night before the Ward vs Dawson double-header in Oakland goes live. The fight will air live on Germany's RTL, Russia's Rossiya-2, and BoxNation in the UK. We'll have live round-by-round coverage in the afternoon, and we will not be avoiding "spoilers." Just a heads-up.
