Huck Slightly Injured Right Hand During Povetkin Loss
By Alexander Pavlov
According to WBO cruiserweight champion Marco Huck (34-2, 25KOs), he slightly injured his right hand during last Saturday's twelve round majority decision loss to WBA "regular" heavyweight champ Alexander Povetkin.
Huck, who saw himself as the clear winner, said the most difficult part of the fight was "the judges at ringside."
However, he said his right hand, which landed on Povetkin often, was injured in the sixth or seventh round.
"I slightly injured my right hand in the sixth or seventh round. I'm not sure [how it happened], maybe as a result of a possible collision with Povetkin's hand or with his head. You saw how he bent the body forward," Huck said.
