During the last few days, some words were exchanged between trainer Fritz Sdunek and the WBO cruiserweight champion Marco Huck (34-2-1, 25KOs). Sdunek, who trains WBC heavyweight beltholder Vitali Klitschko (44-2, 40KOs), believes his champion would overwhelm Huck at the heavyweight level.
Huck looked very impressive in his February heavyweight debut, which resulted in a controversial decision loss to WBA "regular" champ Alexander Povetkin. Huck is looking for another shot at the heavyweight crown. Vitali is at the top of his list.
Bernd Boente, manager of Vitali, has no problem with making that fight - if Huck steers away from making unreasonable financial demands to get it done.
Vitali is expected to return to action in early September.
"I've always said that we can do the fight right away. It could be the next fight for Vitali, but then [Huck's promoter] Sauerland [Event] has to call and allow the fight and don't be ridiculous on the numbers. If they want millions, then it makes no sense," Boente told BoxingScene.com.
"If it's a [sensible] number, then he gets a chance to fight for the championship. We are the last people to say no...why not?"
