Huck's Trainer Warns: Do Not Underestimate Fragomeni

By Raphael Kyc

On April 2 at the Gerry Weber Stadium in Halle, Marco Huck (31-1, 23 KOs) will make the next defense of his WBO cruiserweight title against ex-champ Giacobbe Fragomeni (27-3-1, 11 KO). Meanwhile, Huck trainer, Ulli Wegner is telling his fighter not to underestimate his Italian opponent and predicts that it will be very tough fight.

"Fragomeni reminds me of a lot of Victor Ramirez, with the way he charges at his opponents. Giacobbe is a dangerous boxer. He can make things very hard," said the German coach.

Wegner argues that the key to victory over the 41-year-old Italian  - is tactical disciplin.

"In professional boxing, you can't count on ability alone. Marco must strictly stick to the right tactics that will determine the fight for him. If Huck keeps a cool head, as he did in the fight with Ramirez, then he'll come through," the coach said.

All he has to do is avoid getting ktfo and he'll win.

Huck can't lose a fight in Germany. He could get knocked spark out and the ref would disqualify the opponent for an illegal fist-butt. 41 year old Italian? I've got a better chance of ****ting a gold brick than Fragomeni…
