Alexander vs Huck Ready To Go, Marco Signs The Contract
By Ruslan Chikov
WBO cruiserweight champion Marco Huck (34-1, 25KOs) is more than serious about his move to the heavyweight division. The German star signed a contract on Friday to face WBA "regular" champion Alexander Povetkin (23-0, 16KOs), who also agreed, on February 25th at Porsche-Arena in Stuttgart, Germany. Huck invaded the post-fight press conference to Povetkin's knockout victory over Cedric Boswell and challenged him before the press.
According to sources close to Huck, the boxer is not vacating his WBO crown. In the event of a victory, Huck will make decision on whether his plans to stay at heavyweight or move back down to cruiser.
Huck is rated #1 @ CW by RING. Yoan Pablo Hernandez is rated #2 and on Feb. 4th is scheduled to fight Steve Cunningham who is rated #3. Be interesting to see if RING drops Huck from its CW ratings…Comment by Superflo777 on 12-24-2011
