Marco Huck: Beating Povetkin Can Lead To Vitali Klitschko
by Ruslan Chikov & Alexander Pavlov
WBO cruiserweight champion Marco Huck (34-1, 25 KOs) believes a win over WBA "regular" heavyweight champion Alexander Povetkin (23-0, 16 KOs) will lead to a big clash with WBC king Vitali Klitschko ( Klitschko (43-2, 40KOs). Huck had previously challenged the Klitschkos and the two brothers laughed him off. After beating Povetkin, he feels Vitali will finally be willing to fight him.
"I've wanted to fight them in the ring for a very long time. However, it seems, it's going to take a long time for this kind of fight to happen. But, with a victory over Povetkin and winning the title of WBA, I could get this fight very quickly," Huck said. "I would like to enter the ring against Vitali. I want to fight him."

I Think it should be even "illegal" to call out a Klitschko if you have no business beating them..Post a Comment/View More User Comments (8)
