Charr questions whether bout will take place

Dk Poster 2WBA heavyweight champion Manuel Charr (31-4, 17 KOs) is scheduled to face WBA interim heavyweight champion Trevor Bryan (20-0, 14 KOs) on January 29 at the Seminole Hard Rock Hotel and Casino in Hollywood, Florida.

However, Charr isn’t convinced that the bout will happen, writing on his Facebook page: “Do you think the fight will take place? Or is it a wrong play again from Don King? As I said, I am fully in training and I will be fit for the fight. From the street to the stars!”

There is speculation in the German media that the fight announcement is a ploy to get Charr stripped of the WBA belt, which Charr won in 2017 but has yet to defend. At this point, it’s not even certain that Charr can enter the U.S. due to COVID-19 restrictions.

  • I question if the bout(s) will take place either. I would think during this goofy pandemic that more time and focus would be needed to put things in place to maximize monetary gains from the fights. Unless I am missing something that is what I question.

  • I must have missed something. When did Trevor Bryan become an interim heavyweight champion!?!?

  • Will this be the first heavyweight title fight in the new communist America under the communist democrat regime?

  • Boxing has always been known as the red light district of sports, and this fight is a perfect example why; two guys fighting on a PPV card that nobody in their right mind will buy, for a World title that nobody knew existed, and one of the participants isn’t even sure the fight will happen or if he could even enter the country!… Don King keeping it real!

    • Kris, I’m not sure I’d watch the fight if it was on during work hours and the boss was buying the beers!

      Just kidding, I do like me some beer!

      Sadly, (and obviously) I am a boxing fan, so I have to admit I would watch this fight…on basic cable though. PPV IS a joke!

  • I still can’t believe that the Trevor Bryan vs BJ Flores fight was for the Interim WBA Title smh

    • Anything is possible with the WBA if you’re signed with King. King could have gotten Reggie Stickland a title shot.

  • Holy damn, that poster is straight from the “Fake Event Hall of Fame”…someone got their 4th-grader to open Microsoft Paint. That poster shouts “not happening” at the top of its lungs.

  • How long can this guys hold a splintered title without having a match? Charrs last fight was 2017. I get that nobody take his version of the title seriously, but three plus years is a long time without a fight.

  • Looks like another joke title fight… Everyone knows Fred is the uncrowned champ
