Huck vs Arslan Winner Must Face Ola Afolabi Next

By Ruslan Chikov

The World Boxing Organization has notified Sauerland Event that November 3rd's winner between Marco Huck (34-2-1, 25KOs) and Firat Arslan (32-5-2, 21KOs) must face Ola Afolabi (19-2-4, 9KOs) in 180 days. If Huck prevails, it will set up a trilogy match with Afolabi. Huck won a close decision over Afolabi in December 2009 and fought him to an exciting twelve round majority draw in May, with many observers scoring the second contest in favor of Huck.

I wouldn't be too surprised if Huck vacates and goes back up to heavyweight after this fight, I don't think he wants to bother with Afolabi again. Huck did pretty well against Povetkin; Huck-Adamek or Huck-Arreola would be goo fights,…

What has Afolabi done to receive just another shot at Huck? Thats not a fight that boxing needs. The first two fights were not that good and Afolabi is a stinker.

Agreed. Rather see Huck/Povetkin II though.

Huck-Afolabi III will be another exciting fight. There's going to be some very good cruiserweight matchups in 2013. Masternak and Chakhkiev are in the mix now, both are potential champions.
