Charr deserves this opportunity, and he will likely be a much tougher opponent than the absurdly over-hyped Chisora was. If Haye beats Charr convincingly, even Haye's worst critics will have to give him some credit.
I see it like you. It is very strange why Charr gets so much hate here.
Just look at Hayes heavyweight resume. His best wins are Valuev (he was crap at that time) and Chisora.
Charr lacks speed and world class skills. But this guy comes to fight was never hurt and CAn performe on a good level if he is in shape.
For me he made a good fight against Vitali before this bullshit stoppage came. I really belive they looked for an "easy escape" for Vitali. I NEVER saw such a stuipid ass stoppage in a heavyweight World title fight.
Look at Arreola his nose was a bloody mess and he had a big cut over his eye. Yet he was able to go 12 rounds. Or Abraham fought with a broken jaw! And was bleeding VERY bad.
But Charr gets stopped because he bleeds for 30 seconds? BULLSHIT!
But still people say he is a bum and not good enough for Haye (WHO is Haye?
). This is just stuipid nothing more.
