Porsche Arena, Stuttgart, Germany - WBA "regular" heavyweight champion Alexander Povetkin (24-0, 16 KOs) retained his title with a very tough majority decision over WBO cruiserweight king Marco Huck (34-2, 25 KOs). Povetkin dominated early, but Huck returned fire in the later rounds to stagger the WBA champion several times. In the final two rounds, a few tired Povetkin was hanging on while Huck was trying to finish him off with big right hands.
At ringside, controversial British heavyweight Dereck Chisora was taking photos. Last week, also in Germany, Chisora caused quite a stir with an unexpected brawl with countryman David Haye at the post-fight press conference to Chisora's bout with Vitali Klitschko.
