Everything went about as expected.
Few people in the boxing world gave previously-unbeaten Manuel Charr much of a chance against reigning WBC heavyweight champion Vitali Klitschko in their bout today (Sat., Sept. 8, 2012) in Moscow, Russia, and while it wasn't quite the protracted beating everyone expected, things were pretty definitive.
The first three rounds consisted almost entirely of the 6'8" Klitschko bouncing jabs and straights off Charr's tight guard, scoring a questionable knockdown in the second round on a counter right. Charr had occasional success when he attempted balls-out rushes, but generally just could not reach his giant opponent's head.
In the fourth round, Klitschko caught Charr with an extremely tight left hook as the latter ducked in, opening a cut above his right eye. Though it didn't look too awful, the doctor thought otherwise and waived the bout off.
Charr threw a fit, but is the recipient of Klitschko's 41st career stoppage.
