Former WBA heavyweight champion Alexander Povetkin, 27-1-(19),knocked out Manuel Charr,26-2-(15), in the seventh round at the Luzhniki Arena in Moscow, Russia on Friday night.
As expected Povetkin went after Charr from the opening bell and used all his experience and power push Charr on the back foot. Charr did have his moments during the bout but Povetkin eventfully tagged Charr, knocking him down and through the ropes with a cracking right hand after 1.09 of the seventh round to claim the WBC International title.
