Marco Huck Back on March 29th, Hernandez Withdraws

Marco Huck returns to action after his brilliant victory over Firat Arslan. On the 29th of March, "Captain" Huck will defend his WBO cruiserweight title in Berlin's Velodrome for the 13th time. With a victory, he would break the previous record of British boxer Johnny Nelson (WBO titlist from 1999-2006).

Huck is taking over the date for his teammate, Yoan Pablo Hernandez, who was scheduled to defend his IBF cruiserweight title against Poland's Pawel Kolodziej. Hernandez is still suffering from a gastritis (stomach lining infection) issue and can not train in the coming weeks.

Huck was in action on the 25th of January in Stuttgart, when he knocked out Arslan in their rematch.

Huck's next opponent will be announced shortly.

"I'm training, I am in top shape and looking forward to the fight in Berlin. I fear no enemy, as a champion I always went against the best fighters. My fans can look forward to a great show in the ring," said the 29-year-old WBO champion.

Tickets are available at www.eventim.de. All previously purchased tickets for the boxing event at the Velodrome on March 29 remain valid.

Huck wants to fight at HW. He's been eager since the Povetkin semi-robbery. He'll probably have a weak opponent for this record breaking defense and then move to HW.

Will Sauerland ever match Huck and Hernandez (when healthy) in the future? Seems like there is no noise being made for this match-up.
