Afolabi will face off with Huck on May 5 in a rematch at the Messehalle Erfurt, Germany. Afolabi lost a close points decision in the first fight with Huck in December 5, 2009.

Ola Afolabi:

“I am not thinking of losing at all. Marco Huck is a tough fighter but tacticwise he is not very smart.

“With K2 and the Klitschkos as well as trainer Fritz Sdunek I have a great team and I am much more professional than in 2009.

“I am the youngest of 8 brothers and thus I always had to fight, it is in my genes.

“I am mentally and physically ready for Huck. He needs a gun to beat me.

 

Tom Loeffler, Managing Director of K2 Promotions:

“We are very excited about the fight. When Ola signed with K2 this was the goal that we had planned and now he has got the chance to become world champion.

The fight will be promoted by Sauerland Event in association with K2 Promotions and will be broadcast live in Germany on ARD television network.
