Klitschko vs Charr Video: Weigh-In From Moscow

Scott Christ is the managing editor of Bad Left Hook and has been covering boxing for SB Nation since 2006.

Here's an artistic look at the Vitali Klitschko vs Manuel Charr weigh-in from Friday in Moscow:

[ Preview: Klitschko vs Charr ]

Klitschko (44-2, 40 KO) is the massive favorite over Charr (21-0, 11 KO), who could generously be called a fringe contender if you're in a great mood, as he hasn't even ever proven himself at the top European level. (And I don't mean "European" as some coy slap in the face to a "style," I just mean the European titles, which I more or less respect as legitimate mid-level competition.)

I really see no way he's competitive in this fight, let alone a winner, but this could well be the last fight of Vitali Klitschko's celebrated career, if the rumors are to be believed and the 41-year-old is more interested in politics than pugilism these days, so we'll be here this afternoon with live coverage starting at 2:30 on BoxNation from the UK.

HBO will also be showing this fight on tape delay tonight with the Ward vs Dawson show, starting at 9:45 pm EDT. We won't be avoiding "spoilers" this afternoon, so if you come here, chances are you're going to see the result on the main page.
