Marco Huck: I Really Want To Fight Wladimir Klitschko

By Luke Furman

WBO cruiserweight champion Marco Huck (34-2-1, 25KOs) has once again discussed his eagerness to move up to the heavyweight division for a fight with IBO/WBO/IBF/WBA champion. Huck revealed that he actually spoke directly with Bernd Boente, the manager of the Klitschko brothers.

Huck made the jump to heavyweight in February and lost a controversial twelve round majority decision to WBA "regular" champion Alexander Povetkin. He then returned to cruiserweight and fought Ola Afolabi to a twelve round majority draw. Huck will once again defend his cruiserweight title this Saturday, when he faces former champion Firat Arslan (32-5-2, 21KOs) at the Gerry Weber Stadium in Halle, Germany.

If he defeats Arslan, he wants to fight Wladimir (58-3, 50KOs). The younger brother is scheduled to fight in Hamburg next Saturday, defending his titles against undefeated Polish challenger Mariusz Wach (27-0, 15KOs).

Champion WBO heavyweight champion of Bosnian origin German Marco Huck going after battle with compatriot Turkish origin Firat Arslan move to heavyweight for a meeting with one of the Klitschko brothers.

"I really want to go to heavyweight to fight against Wladimir Klitschko. It would be a fight that the public wants. At this point I have spoken on the phone with the brothers' manager Bernd Bente, and he repeated his offer [for me to fight Wladimir]," Huck said.
