By Ruslan Chikov

Saturday's controversial cruiserweight fight between WBO champion Marco Huck and challenger Firat Arslan generated a huge television rating for ARD. The network reports that 3.36 million TV viewers were watching Huck and Arslan trade punches for twelve rounds. Huck won a unanimous decision over twelve, with scores of 115-111-, 115-113 and 117-111 at the Gerry Weber Stadium in Halle, Nordrhein-Westfalen, Germany.

Arslan was furious with the outcome. The ringside punch stats reveal a very close contest. The two boxers were blocking many of the incoming punches. Huck landed 241 out of 857 blows (a 28% connect rate). Arslan was more accurate and landed at a higher percentage. He landed nearly the same amount of punches but threw less. Arslan had 235 connects out of 684 punches thrown (34% connect rate). Huck boosted his punch ratio in the second half of the fight, when Arslan seemed to slow down for a few rounds.

That's no monster TV rating by German standards at all, even if you exclude the Klitschkos with their 10 million and more viewers. Marco Huck had 6.3 million viewers for his heavyweight debut against Povetkin, and over 5 million tuned in when he was fighting Brian Minto. In fact, Saturday's 3....

not surprising the bigger and lower weights get more love outside the US but Huck didn't look all that impressive if he's trying to build momentum for another HW shot, he flopped he might still get a chance because of the HW dearth Arslan should be given a rematch first though
