Ola Afolabi (19-2-4, 9 KOs) is hoping to secure a third fight with WBO cruiserweight champion Marco Huck after battling to a draw with the titleholder at the Messehalle in Erfurt, Germany last Saturday night.

The 32 year-old has now shared 24 rounds with the former world heavyweight title challenger, losing once contrversially and is adamant his exploits have given him the right to twelve more after retaining his status as interim champion.

To me getting a draw in Germany is a win, Afolabi said in a recent video interview with Sport Eagle TV.

Obviously Im not pleased with the result but Ive could have been a lot worse off. Ive spoken to about twenty people afterwards and they all had me winning by about two rounds and that didnt include the knockdown in the second round that wasnt counted.

Im sure Huck touched the canvas before the bell went; therefore I should have won the fight by at least one round. I think the WBO will want a rematch because it gives good attention to them. Im confident well do it again, I want it so bad, he added.

The London-born fighter, who defeated compatriot Enzo Maccarinelli in Manchester three years ago, is hoping to fight in the UK for only the second time after being given exposure on the British-based boxing channel BoxNation.

Ive had a lot of people back home contacting me on Facebook saying they had watched the fight on BoxNation so there are fans out there who want to see me fight in Britain.

I know German fans will show up. Its only about an hours flight so lets get some English and German fans together and lets do it on an even fair basis but if they (Sauerland) want to do it in another country, then lets do it over there, explained Afolabi.
