Ulli Wegner, trainer of WBO world cruiserweight champion Marco Huck (34-2, 25 KOs), has a lot of respect for Ola Afolabi (19-2-3, 9 KOs). In December 2009, Huck won a close decision over Afolabi and now the two men will get it on for a second time on May 5th in Erfurt, Germany.

In the first bout, Huck had his share of trouble with Afolabi's tricky style. He managed to put enough punches together to win a unanimous decision with scores of 115-113, 116-112 and 115-113. Afolabi, however, believes he was robbed. Since that defeat, Afolabi earned his mandatory opportunity by winning five in a row and stopping three of those opponents.

"Afolabi is very strong and we expect a very hard fight. We overcame him once, but we consider him to be a very difficult opponent. This time, we are going to prepare very carefully for the new confrontation. Marco is looking forward to this fight. If we can dictate the terms in the ring, it will be a great fight for us," Wegner said.
