Marco Huck on Facing Hugo Garay, Training, More

WBO Cruiserweight Champion Marco “Captain” Huck (32-1, 23 KOs) has promised his fans another exciting victory on July 16 when he faces Argentinian ex-champion Hugo Hernan Garay (34-5, 18 KOs) at Munich´s Olympic Park. Boxing-Online.com has caught up with the 26-year-old German ahead of what will already be his seventh title defence.

Q: Marco, how has the preparation been going?

MH: “Things have been going very well. After my victory over Ran Nakash in April, I took a brief vacation and then went straight back to the gym. I have been working out in Berlin with my coach Ulli Wegner. I´m in perfect shape.”

Q: What do you think of Garay?

MH: “He is a former world champion, so that tells you all about his class. He is strong and very aggressive and I expect him to come forward a lot. However, he has never been inside the ring with someone like me. I will give him a proper beating.”

Q: What makes you so confident?

MH: “I just have a lot of faith in my abilities. I know how strong I am. My fans love my explosive style and my punching power. Garay most certainly cannot keep up with me. I will wear him down.”

Q: It will be a special weekend in Munich, with the DTM (German Touring Car Championship) racing in the Olympic Park. Is that something you are looking forward to?

MH: “Absolutely. I love cars and I am a huge DTM fan. We will be doing a lot of cross-PR and I can´t wait to get into a car with one of their famous racers and drive a few laps. It will indeed be a great, great weekend for sports fans in Munich. Boxing and car racing, what more can you ask for on one weekend!”

Q: The fight against Garay will already be your seventh title defence in less than two years. Do you like staying busy?

MH: “I just love to be in the ring. There are a lot of talented contenders out there but as the world champion I have to constantly prove myself against top opposition. That´s what I have done ever since winning the title from Ramirez in August 2009. On July 16, it´s Garay´s turn to take a beating and then we will see what the future holds. Of course it is my aim to unify the division but I take one step at a time and right now I only have Garay on my mind.”

Q: In the co-featured main event, Eduard Gutknecht will make a first defence of his European Light Heavyweight Title. What do you think of him?

MH: “Eddy is a great guy. He has only been with us since the beginning of the year but he has already proven his class. He works hard in training and I´m sure he will get our coach Ulli Wegner another big win on July 16, just like me.”

Cunningham already did, [URL="http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=smKatDSbfqs"]http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=smKatDSbfqs[/URL] Marco Huck is a good fighter he comes to fight, but Ledebev beat him and im pretty sure Memo Jones would too. Him vs Krystof Wlodarzyck or something like that would be a good one to…
