Marco Huck vs. Ola Afolabi III on June 8th in Berlin

It is now clear: the trilogy fight between WBO champion Marco Huck (35-2-1, 25 KO's) and interim titlist Ola Afolabi (33 years, 19-2-4, 9 KO's) will take place in Berlin on June 8th at the Max-Schmeling-Halle. Both opponents first fought in December 2009, and Huck won a close fight with scores of 115:113, 115:113 and 116:112. In April 2012, they met again in Erfurt and fought to a twelve round draw (114:114, 114:114 and 115:113).

Sauerland Event, who promote Huck, secured the rights to the fight after Don King, who won the purse bid, was unable to finalize the event within the required time period.

Sauerland Event General Manager Chris Meyer stated - "Once that was clear, we quickly reached an agreement with Tom Loeffler of K2 Promotions, who represents the interests of interim champion Ola Afolabi, on the event date. The championship fight is on June 8 and it will be held in Berlin. Huck vs. Afolabi III will be shown live on ARD."

Huck wants to set the record straight on home soil.

"Ola Afolabi is indeed a tough one. Yet again he will make my life very difficult. In Berlin, I will set the record straight," Huck said.

Tickets will be available on the Internet at www.eventim.de .

The cries of robbery in the previous fights are unjust. Afolabi started off really well in both but allowed Huck to take over when his stamina diminished. If Afolabi can keep it up for 12 rounds, he'll get the decision…

[QUOTE=vacon04;13304236]It's going to be another close fight in which Afolabi deserves to win but Huck will get the decision. Huck should already have defeats against Afolabi, Lebedev and Arslan.[/QUOTE] I had Huck winning the first one (I think) but I…

[QUOTE=Levity;13304661]The decisions in the first two fights were fair. To those who disagree, which rounds did Huck unarguably not win in the fight/fights whose result/results you dispute?[/QUOTE] I agree, the judging was just about perfect in both bouts, surprisingly. No…
