Marck Huck Decides: He's Returning To Cruiserweight

By Per Ake Persson

After having lengthy discussions with manager Wilfried Sauerland, Sauerland Event CEO Chris Meyer, trainer Ulli Wegner, and matchmaker Hagen Doering - Marco Huck (34-2, 25KOs) has decided to return to cruiserweight. Huck, still the WBO's cruiserweight champion, has a mandatory obligation against interim-king Ola Afolabi.

It was announced already at the press conference, which took place after Huck´s controversial loss to Alexander Povetkin on February 25, that there wouldn´t be a rematch - or at least not an immediate rematch - as Povetkin also has a mandatory challenger, Hasim Rahman, to take care of first.
 
Huck beat Afolabi the first time around, back in December of 09, but it was on a very close decision.

"I would have loved to remain at heavyweight but my team convinced me to stay at cruiserweight for the time being,” he said. “That´s fine for me. I am happy to continue my domination and keep destroying opponents. I will start with Afolabi. He is a dangerous fighter but he has no chance against me.”

[QUOTE=Clegg;11867800]I think there are more interesting match-ups for him at heavyweight, so that's a shame. I like Afolabi but I'd be surprised if their rematch was much different to their first fight.[/QUOTE] Afolabi has improved since then and in their…

Had he decided to stay at HW, he would have had to abandon his CW title. . . So, in the future, if hte opportunity arises and the money is there to fight a guy like Chisora, Fury, Helenius -…

[QUOTE=Clegg;11868547]I agree about that K bros, but aside from them I'd like to see him against pretty much anyone in the top 20 at heavyweight. Against Povetkin he really went for it and threw a lot of power shots, the…

[QUOTE=UglyPug;11868294]But to what end? To what end? No rematch in sight with Povetkin, who is the consensus third best HW, and the only other possible "beltholder" (if you even want to consider him as such). He could stick around and…
