Huck: Vitali is Afraid of David Haye, Ran From Me Too

By Alexander Pavlov

WBO cruiserweight champion Marco Huck (35-2-1, 25KOs) sent a few verbal jabs in the direction of WBC heavyweight champion Vitali Klitschko. Huck is going to face Ola Afolabi in a trilogy bout on June 8th at the Max Schmeling Halle in Prenzlauer Berg, Berlin, Germany. But what Huck really wants to do is face Vitali or his younger brother Wladimir Klitschko. Huck moved up to the heavyweight division early last year and lost a controversial decision to WBA "regular" champion Alexander Povetkin.

"Look, Vitali wanted to fight with David Haye, but now he is afraid of him. Klitschko knows that battle would be very dangerous for him. Honestly, I would not advise [Vitali to face me]. He repeatedly ran away from me. In addition, there is a political conflict over the television rights between ARD and RTL. My management team offered Klitschko good money, but they refused. What else is there to say? If they want to fight, I'm ready! I'm a fighter who is ready to fight," Huck said.

Huck nearly beat Povetkin, he's more deserving of a Klitschko shot than Charr, Wach, Thompson, Mormeck and Chambers were. That being said I think Guillermo Jones beats him, if Afolabi doesn't do it first.

Vitali chased that girl Haye before his brother drummed him, and after his brother drummed him. Vitali gave Haye EVERY chance in the world to fight and Haye retired instead, having just BS his waay into a Lottery Payday with…

[QUOTE=johnnycontrolet;13421538]Huck is a lousy joke. Lost to Lebedev, lost to Afolabi but wants to beat a Klitschko? The guy just wants PR and a big payday.[/QUOTE] I don't think he lost to Afolabi either fight. Both decisions were fair IMO.…
