A great honor and a lot of fun for WBO-Champion Marco Huck right before his mandatory defense at the Messehalle in Erfurt (live on ARD at 10:55 pm) against the Brit Ola Afolabi: The Cruiserweight World Champion is a Doctor! The Dean of the “Miami Life Development Church” awarded Huck with an honorary title. Normally Daniel van Hoogen sells these titles to the masses via the internet. But as a big fan of Captain Huck the Luebeck native thought of something special.
“We believe that Marco possesses one of the strongest punches in boxing and always excites the crowd with great knock-outs. Therefore he deserves this title for his contribution to the sport. By the way, no one can buy his title and we won’t be offering it again to nobody,”
Marco Huck – from Captain to Doctor! His title from now on will be: “Dr.h.c. of hardest punches and knockouts, MLDC, USA”. At the official award ceremony, Huck showed his appreciation at the city centre of Erfurt: “I promise that I will try everything to prove that I am worthy of this honor.” The current world champion is planning his opponent Ola Afolabi to be the first treatment of “Doctor Huck”. “Marco Huck: Today it´s just playing games but Saturday will be all business"
