Huck Doesn't Rule Out Dropping For a Lebedev Rematch
By Rulsan Chikov & Alexander Pavlov
WBO cruiserweight champion Marco Huck (34-1, 25KOs) is taking a huge jump on February 25th when he moves up in weight to challenge WBA "regular" heavyweight champ Alexander Povetkin (23-0, 16KOs). Some fans are questioning Huck's rise in weight without finishing some necessary business at 200-pounds, like a rematch with Denis Lebedev of Russia. Lebdev lost a controversial split decision to Huck in 2010. The German star is interested in dropping down in weight, after he face Povetkin, for a potential rematch with Lebedev.
"First, I want to fight with Povetkin, and then return to cruiserweight specifically for a rematch with Lebedev. But such decisions are not my own, there are made by my promoter Wilfried Sauerland. That fight with Lebedev was a big battle. In the ring there were two real warriors. And when the fight ended, the referee raised my hand," Huck said.
