Vitali Klitschko faces Manuel Charr in what may be the final fight of the distinguished champion's career.
Vitali Klitschko faces Manuel Charr in what may be the final fight of the distinguished champion's career.
Scott Christ is the managing editor of Bad Left Hook and has been covering boxing for SB Nation since 2006.

This afternoon, Vitali Klitschko will fight in Moscow for the first time as a professional, defending his WBC heavyweight title against Manuel Charr.

Bad Left Hook will have live round-by-round coverage of the card, so keep in mind that those waiting to watch this on U.S. TV on tape delay later tonight, we're going to "spoil" the outcome for you -- not that there figures to be much to spoil.

Fight time: 2:30 p.m. EDT (BoxNation - UK) / 5:00 p.m. EDT (RTL - Germany) / 9:45 p.m. EDT (HBO - US, tape delay)

Location: Olimpiyskiy - Moscow, Russia

TV channel: BoxNation (UK) / RTL (Germany) / Rossiya-2 (Russia) / HBO (US - tape delay)

There is talk that this could be the final fight of the 41-year-old Klitschko's career, as he has political aspirations calling him away from the sweet science. If it is, he's almost certainly going out with a win.
