Comments Thread For: Hucks Survives a Tough Challenge To Decision Arslan
Gerry Weber Stadium, Halle, Nordrhein-Westfalen, Germany - Marco Huck (35-2-1, 25KOs) won a very close twelve round unanimous decision over former WBA beltholder Firat Arslan (32-5-2, 21KOs). The scores were 115-113, 115-113 and a very wide 117-111. Not everyone was happy with the outcome, with some ringside observers scoring the contest for Arslan. The British broadcasters at BoxNation scored it for Huck by three points, but Steve Bunce was in the studio and had it 115-114 for Arslan.

115-113 Huck. I thought the rounds Arslan won were the close ones. The ones Huck won were pretty solidly his.

I had it 118-10 for Arslan and it really wasn't hard to score at all. Huck is the ugliest fighter to watch and I still have no idea how he still has a belt. Sucks for Arslan, he put in so much work only to get robbed like this by these corrupt judges.

As someone who enjoys watching Huck fight, I had Arslan winning pretty convincingly, 116-112. I honestly don't even see how it's debatable to be honest. Arslan did all of the consistent, clean and effective work round after round. And most of Huck's punches were being blocked/smothered. Meanwhile, Arslan was the one effectively pressing the fight, cutting off the ring, and landing great punches to the head and body, especially the left uppercut.

It was a close fight, and not a robbery, although I had Arslan edging it by one point 115-114.
A draw would have been a fair result.
I don't have a problem with the 115-113 scores for Huck because some rounds were very close, but anything wider is stretching it. The 117-111 scorecard was ridiculous.

I like Huck but I didn't think he won this contest.
Wladimir punches Huck's jaw off his skull. Huck better book himself a hospital bed.
