Photos: Marco Huck vs. Firat Arslan Open Workouts

The wait is almost over. Marco Huck will defend his WBO Cruiserweight title on Saturday for the tenth time. He will take on former WBA Champion Firat Arslan at the Gerry Weber Stadion in Halle/Westphalia, Germany. Ahead of the fight, both protagonist took part in today's public workout staged at the Business Club of the local Football team Arminia Bielefeld. Photos by Gerry Weber World.

First to show-off his skills was the challenger. Although Arslan is already 42-years of age, the former world champion himself believes that he is in the best shape of his long lasting career. But surprisingly he was not really willing to let the masses as well as his opponent have a sneak peak of his tough training regime.

"The fans will be able to see what I can do come Saturday night", promised the challenger. "I came here to win the world championship." His coach Dieter Wittmann was also optimistic. "Firat is about 30 percent better than I have ever seen him."

But in order to take the WBO Belt he will need these 30 percent. His opponent of the night, the Champion himself, is aiming to keep his winning streak at the Gerry Weber Stadion alive. Twice before in his career Huck stepped into the arena in Halle/Westfalen and left it as the winner. And he was eager to show, that he is still as good as he was back in 2009 when he first won the WBO Crown at the very same stadium. He once again is counting on the support of the home fans.

"It is always a pleasure to travel to Halle/Westphalia. It is here where I first became a world champion and now I have the chance to defend my title for the tenth time. Coach Ulli Wegner, who has been working with Huck for most of his career, is sure that his prodigy has what it takes to be victorious against Arslan. "The development of Marco has been immense. I am totally confident that he will leave the ring as the WBO Super Champion."

But before the clash between these two explosive boxers, Huck and his coach will be attending the German Cup game between Arminia Bielefeld and Bayer Leverkusen. After some of the Bielefeld players visited Huck at today's workout session, it is obvious who the champion will be rooting for.
