Afolabi: I'm Knocking Huck Out, Or Getting Knocked Out!

By Phil D. Jay

British-born cruiserweight Ola Afolabi is confident he can halt WBO cruiserweight champion Marco Huck’s two and a half-year reign and become the first man in over four-years to KO the German when they meet on May 5th in Erfurt.

The 32 year-old, who demolished former belt holder Enzo Maccarinelli in nine rounds, believes his can gain revenge on Huck, who took a controversial points decision over the US-based fighter 27 months ago.

“I'm going to go for the KO or get KO’d myself, “ Afolabi told World Boxing News.

“The judges might as well stay home cause this one is not going the distance!”

Huck, 27, recently failed at an attempt to win the heavyweight crown from WBA title holder Alexander Povetkin and Afolabi is not surprised that the Berlin-based champion moved back down the weights after failing to land a rematch.

“Huck had nowhere to go after he lost to Povetkin,” said Afolabi.

“Most heavyweights in the world would knock him out, whether it’s Adamek, Arreola or the Klitschko’s.

“Povetkin has to fight Hasim (Rahman), so Huck really had no moves left but to come get KO’d by me,” he added.
