Huck: I'm Ready To Replace David Haye, Face Vitali

by Luke Furman

WBO cruiserweight champion Marco Huck (34-2-1, 25KOs) has no fear of WBO/IBO/IBF/WBA heavyweight king Wladimir Klitschko. This Saturday in Germany, Huck defends his title against former champion Firat Arslan. If he wins, he wants to move up to the heavyweight division to fight a Klitschko.

He praises Vitali, calling him "a real man" but said he would make Wladimir "my girlfriend" in the ring.

"Vitali is a real man, he took part in real battles. And Wladimir lost his big fights miserably and then never met these competitors again. Everyone wants to see me and Wladimir fight, it could be held at the Olympic Stadium in Berlin," Huck said.

"Vitali, unfortunately, will soon be a part of boxing history. Right now he's busy with his party in the Ukrainian parliament and possibly he might hold a fight with Haye. If he doesn't - then I'm ready to go in place of Haye."

There is a network issue. Both Klitschko brothers have an exclusive contract with Germany network RTL, while Huck is under a TV deal with ARD. Huck has a solution.

"It's simple: my fight with one of the brothers will be broadcast by RTL, and my fight with another can be on ARD," Huck said.
