Huck: Povetkin Probably Wants To Settle Sparring Score

WBO cruiserweight champion Marco Huck (34-1, 25KOs) is expecting a score to be settled on February 25th in Stuttgart, Germany, when he moves up to heavyweight to challenge WBA "regular" champion Alexander Povektin (23-0, 16KOs). Some of Huck's critics are wondering if the boxer should have cleared up the cruiserweight ranks, like David Haye and Evander Holyfield, before a move to heavyweight was finalized. Huck disagrees. He feels there is some bad blood from a past sparring session and the opportunity was too good to pass up.

"Holyfield and David Haye had to take a few fights at heavyweight before going for the championship. With me, I have an immediate opportunity to fight for the heavyweight belt. And I'd be a fool, to give up this opportunity. I want to fight Povetkin right now. After all, he said that we still have old score to settle. Apparently he's thinking about our sparring session from a long time ago," Huck said. "When I sparred with Povetkin, I weighed 196-pounds. And that was enough. Now I weigh 213-pounds."

Huck is the Robert Guerrero of the higher weightclasses.
