Marco Huck Has Vowed To Put Rogelio Rossi Down

Marco Huck (33-1, 24 KOs) will defend his WBO Cruiserweight Title for the eighth time in Ludwigsburg, Germany next Saturday when he is challenged by Argentinian southpaw Rogelio Rossi (17-2-1, 11 KOs). Boxing-online.com has caught up the Captain in his training camp base in Kienbaum near Berlin.

Q: After knocking out Hugo Hernan Garay in July, you got married. Does being a husband change anything inside the ring?

MH: “Not at all. Inside the ring, it does not matter whether I am married or not. I am all by myself. There is only my coach Mr. Wegner who is trying to push me as hard as he can. But at the end of the day it´s just me and my opponent.”

Q: Your challenger Rogelio Rossi is taller than you. Have you changed anything in your preparation?

MH: “I have done sparring with a lot of tall guys. I don´t care what size Rossi is. He will go down. I enter the ring to win and to please my fans. And they can again expect an explosive performance.”

Q: Argentinian fighters always seem to have a very big heart, great fighting spirit and superb condition. How do you think the fight will go?

MH: “I have trained for 12 rounds. I think the fight will last long because, as you say, the guys from Argentina really come to fight. I will give everything from the first second onwards and it will be an exciting clash.”

Q: Two years ago, you made your first title defence in Ludwigsburg against Ola Afolabi. In retrospect, what do you think of that fight?

MH: “It was a big win for me. I defended my belt but I had to overcome some tough moments.  The fans carried me when things got rough and that helped me a lot. I know I can count on their support again this time out.”


Q: What has changed since that fight?

MH: “A lot of things. I am an accomplished world champion these days. I have defended my title seven times. When I started, it was my dream to get a professional contract with Sauerland Event, and now I am a proven champion. That´s great. And I still have a lot of things to accomplish. But first of all, I need to defend my title against Rossi.”
