Vitali Klitschko insists that Manuel Charr represents a threat to his WBC heavyweight title.

WBC heavyweight champion Vitali Klitschko has insisted that Manuel Charr will challenge him on Saturday night, branding him "the new generation of heavyweight boxers".

The 41-year-old has not fought since he beat Dereck Chisora on points in February, and he believes that Charr can pose a significant test to him in Moscow.

Klitschko said: "I know that some people are not taking Charr seriously, considering him a boxer without a big-sounding name and serious experience.

"However, he represents the new generation of heavyweight boxers."

Charr, 27, is unbeaten in 21 fights, but he has yet to face any significant opponents.
