Comments Thread For: Marco Huck Seeks A Big Win To Justify Bigger Dreams
By Jake Donovan - Not even a career cruiserweight like Marco Huck can avoid the temptation of gaining just a few more pounds in pursuit of heavyweight paydays.
Having never weighed above 200 lb for a single fight in his career, Huck decided to try something new earlier this year and contend for a heavyweight bout. Questionable scoring stood in the way of his becoming just the third ever fighter to officially win championships at cruiserweight and heavyweight when he came up on the short end of a majority decision against Alexander Povetkin earlier this year.
The fight was indicative of the shortage of luck experienced in Huck’s career as of late. A strong case can be made for his serving as the best cruiserweight in the world, yet it’s been more than a year since his last official win. A return to cruiserweight was met with a hard-fought draw in a rematch with Ola Afolabi this past May, his last fight to date.
You’d think the only thing on Huck’s mind at this bout would be a return to the win column. The reigning cruiserweight titlist is a heavy favorite to achieve just that when he faces 42-year old challenger Firat Arslan in his 10th title defense Saturday in Halle, Germany. [Click Here To Read More]
