While Vitali prepares for Charr, his younger brother and fellow world champion Wladimir (58-3, 51 KOs) is waiting on the camp of Polish giant Mariusz Wach (27-0, 15 KOs) to agree to terms for a fight on Nov. 10 in Hamburg, Germany.

Bernd Boente, manager of the brothers’ K2 promotional company, tells ESPN that, “I don’t expect big problems [with the contract], but in this business you never know.”
