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."

[QUOTE=Freedom.;11609974]I don't think Huck can even beat Povetkin, let alone a Klitschko. He'll face reality after Feb 25.[/QUOTE] I agree with this. Alexander is better in every way and is bigger. Huck gets smashed. No need to talk Klitschko.

Huck has battered inferior cruiserweight foes but, when challenged by Denis Lebedev, spent almost the whole fight on the run and trying to hide before sneaking away like a thief in the night after being handed a decision that stank…

I Think it should be even "illegal" to call out a Klitschko if you have no business beating them..
