Alekseev Fires Back at Marco Huck, Sets Down Challenge

By Ruslan Chikov

Last week, WBO cruiserweight champion Marco Huck (34-2-1, 25KOs) was laughing out loud when he witnessed the cruiserweight champion of Europe (EBU), Alexander Alekseev (23-2-1, 20KOs), struggle to a twelve round draw with 41-year-old ex-champion Firat Arslan. In past interviews, Alekseev felt he was more than ready to challenge and defeat Huck. He barely got past Arlsan, securing a winning score of 116-113 on one card, but the other two judges saw it 114-114 for the draw.

Huck is not even thinking about a fight with Alekseev, but he still took a moment to offer a verbal slap after Alekseev's performance.

In response, Alekseev offered the following.

You should not throw stones while sitting in a glass house. You lost the fight against Ola Afolabi, and the same thing [happened] against Denis Lebedev in December 2010. My suggestion is this: let's forget about sparring and stage the fight. And then I will you show in the ring, a true champion and you shall be tamed like a bear at the circus," Alekseev said to Figo Sport.

Agree completely !!! Alekseev is the crapiest boxer I have ever seen. Scared of beeing knocked out the whole fight against the 41 year old. Huck would knock him out in 2 also.

This is coming from a guy who got KTFO by Lebedev in 2 rounds? Haa! Huck would do the same thing to Alekseev that Lebedev did. I had high hopes for Aleks but he is on the verge of becoming…
