Afolabi Furious: Marco Huck Continues To Run From Me

By Luke Furman

It's been two years since Ola Afolabi (18-2-3, 8 KOs), born in London and living in Los Angeles, lost a twelve round decision to Marco Huck (34-1, 25 KOs). Now Afolabi is the mandatory challenger to Huck's WBO cruiserweight title. But now there is talk that Huck will move up in weight to face WBA heavyweight champion Alexander Povetkin. If that happens, the belt will become vacant and Afolabi will face another top contender in the rankings. Occupying the second place is Denis Lebedev (23-1, 17 KOs), but a more likely solution is Lateef Kayode (18-0, 14 KOs) and BJ Flores (26-1-1, 16 KOs).

"I do not know who I will fight for the vacant title, and frankly I do not care. Huck is running from me and in front of the whole world he is doing everything possible not to give me the rematch. Now I'm promoted by the Klitschko brothers, so it will be harder for Sauerland to rob me of a victory. Anyway, if we ever meet again in the ring, I'll be going for a knockout. Neither K2 nor Sauerland Event will have any impact on the decision of the judges because I'll take care of everything," Afolabi said.
