Rakhim Chakhkiev Ready For Marco Huck Right Now

By Alexander Pavlov

Waldemar Kluch, CEO of Universum, believes Olympic champion and cruiserweight contender Rakhim Chakhkiev (11-0, 9KOs) is ready to face WBO champion Marco Huck (34-1, 25KOs) right now. Chakhkiev will face Alexander Kotlobay later tonight in Hamburg, Germany. Huck, however, will rise to the heavyweight division on February 25th to challenge WBA "regular" heavyweight champion Alexander Povetkin.

"Chakhkiev would take a fight with Marco Huck tomorrow, and he would even fight him in a phone booth. Rakhim is ready. He just needed the necessary experience and fights. He has been itching [to fight Huck]... I am confident that this year he can become a world champion," Kluch said.
