Charr deserves the fight!

By Jack price @PriceyJ97. 

The rivalry begins. - Charr confronts Haye at Chisora post-fight press conference.
Who were the fans expecting David 'The Hayemaker' Haye to face in his comeback fight on June 29th? Wladimir? Vitali? Tyson Fury? As much as we want these fights to happen, it was always a certainty that none of them were going to take place in June when Haye returns to the ring for the first time in almost a year. It was always going to be a relatively unproven contender that is ranked highly but not that much of a test for the Londoner. And that is what we have got on the 29th; David Haye Vs Manuel Charr.

Charr's latest antic.
In the ring, at the moment Charr is no better than the likes of Kubrat Pulev and Tony Thompson but he has pushed and done everything in his power to get the fight with Haye and he deserves it. His crazy Haye-like antics have got the fans talking and I'm sure there's more to come from him in the build-up to this fight if it does take place.

No matter who Haye and his team choose to face in June, there are going to be some people who moan about the choice, and that's because Haye is widely regarded as the best heavyweight without the surname Klitschko at the moment and we don't want to see him taking on people he is guaranteed to beat. he could claim 'ring rust' but he returned to the ring in the summer of last year after over 12 months out and handled fellow British contender Dereck Chisora with virtually no problem. But, Charr is probably the best guy outside of the top 10 for him to face right now. He's coming off of two impressive stoppage victories and the only loss on his record is to Haye's main target Vitali Klitschko. And that was even slightly controversial as it always is when a fight is stopped because of a cut. If Haye disposes of Charr with little effort then it will be clear that he still belongs at the top.
Then you look at the money this fight will make compared to others. Charr is starting to become a fan favorite in the UK and some people will got to support Charr in this fight in Manchester (It's crazy, but it's true!). Both Haye and Charr are out-going, confident and sometimes controversial characters so you can already imagine what the press conferences and weigh-in will be like for this fight.

I hope for Charr's sake, and our own entertainment purposes, that this fight takes place on June 29th. 'Diamond Boy' deserves it!
