Huck Focuses on Power Training For Povetkin Challenge

By Ruslan Chikov

On February 25th in Stuttgart, Germany, WBO cruiserweight champion Marco Huck (34-1, 25KOs) takes the biggest step of his career, when he moves up to heavyweight to challenge WBA "regular" champion Alexander Povektin (23-0, 16KOs). Huck is putting on the pounds, but he disputes circulated reports of gaining meaningless mass. Huck is concentrating on gaining muscle and strength. The boxer has combined a mixture of diet and power training to reach his goal of capturing a heavyweight title.

There is no rest for the cruiserweight champion. Huck is training twice daily, with coaches Ulli Wegner and George Bramowski during the day, and in the evening with his dad. A high number of pushups, sit-ups  and other forms of pure strength training are motivated on Huck by his father. Huck is now capable of doing 200 pushups in a row and gaining heavyweight power, says the boxer.

"It's hard, but [my father] helps me," says Marco Huck. "I often walk around with weight cuffs on my arms and legs. I [drink] raw eggs with milk, which makes me sick. My father is kind to me and helping make my dream become a reality."
