By Alexander Pavlov
WBO cruiserweight champion Marco Huck (36-2-1, 25 KOs) is going to see another familiar face in the fall. On Saturday night in Berlin, he fought Ola Afolabi (19-3-4, 9 KOss) for a thid time and secured a twelve round majority decision. Last November, Huck won a controversial twelve round unanimous decision over Firat Arslan (33-6-2, 21 KOs). According to promoter Wilfried Sauerland of Sauerland Event, the two fighters will be matched against each other in a fall rematch, likely to take place on a date in October.
"The next match with Huck will take place at cruiserweight. We expect that Marco will enter the ring in October against Firat Arslan. This will be a mandatory title defense," Sauerland said.
