Klitschko TKOs Charr in 4th round

Moscow, Russia (Sports Network) - Vitali Klitschko retained his WBC heavyweight belt with a fourth round TKO over previously unbeaten Manuel Charr Saturday night at the Olimpiyskiy Arena.

Klitschko (45-2), who defended his title for the ninth time, was pretty much in control of the bout, which was stopped when Charr (21-1) suffered a cut over his right eye in round four.

Charr fought for just the second time outside his native Germany.
