After years of toiling away as a contender, Manuel ‘Diamond Boy’ Charr (31-4, 17 KOs) finally captured a world title in defeating 40-year-old Alexander Ustinov (34-2 25 KOs) by a 12 round unanimous decision to win the WBA World heavyweight title on Saturday night in Germany.

The judges scored the fight which took place in the König-Pilsener-Arena in Oberhausen, 115-111, 116-111, and 115-112.

Ustinov dominated the fight until round 7, when Charr was able to nail him with some hard left hands.

One left seemed to hurt Ustinov in the round. By that point in the fight, Ustinov looked exhausted.

Ustinov wasn’t getting pressured hard, but he was still tired by the second half of the fight.

It looked like Ustinov had aged since his previous fight against journeyman Raphael Zumbano Love.

Ustinov knocked Love out in the 1st round.

Charr spent much of the fight plodding into the huge 6’7”, 279-pound Ustinov’s right hands and left hooks.

With the win, Charr captures his first world title of his 12-year pro career in winning the WBA heavyweight title. Charr now must start negotiations with 44-year-old #3 WBA Fres Oquendo (37-8, 24 KOs) for his first title defense.
