Huck: I'm Ready For The Klitschkos, I'll Move Back Up

By Luke Furman

WBO cruiserweight champion Marco Huck (34-2, 25 KOs) believes that he is ready to challenge the kings of the heavyweight division, Wladimir and Vitali Klitschko. After nearly defeating WBA "regular" champion Alexander Povetkin last month in Germany, Huck made a decision to return to cruiserweight for a mandatory defense against Ola Afolabi.

"I am ready to fight the Klitschko brothers, but right now I'm the holder of the WBO cruiserweight title and I need to make a mandatory defense. Certainly in future I will return to the heavyweight division, and there I'll capture a world title," Huck said.

Huck's trainer, Uli Wegner, feels a move a cruiserweight is the best move, at the moment, for his fighter.

"It seems to me that the fight with Ola Afolabi is the best direction for Marco at the moment," Wegner said.

The best thing for the HW division is for the Klitschkos to retire. I don't mean it as any sort of disrespect but they're so much bigger and better than the rest that anything other than a Wlad vs Vitali…
