Team Klitschko: Huck Can Fight Vitali in February, March

By Ruslan Chikov

If Marco Huck (34-1, 25KOs) wants the pleasure of fighting a Klitschko, he may just get the opportunity to satisfy his demand. The WBO cruiserweight champion has been discussing a possible move to the heavyweight division and the first targets on his list are the Klitschko brothers, who practically own every major title at the weight.  

Bernd Boente, the business manager of the Klitschko brothers, is looking to secure an opponent for Vitali Klitschko (43-2, 40KOs), who plans to defend his WBC title in February or March of 2012.

A Vitali-Huck fight is easier said than done. Television politics will likely prevent the showdown from taking place. Huck, promoted by Sauerland Event, is contractually bound to German network ARD, while Klitschko has an exclusive deal with rival network RTL.

Boente is open to exploring the contest - if Huck agrees that RTL secures the television rights. Television politics played a big role in the failed negotations to make a fight between Vitali and Nikolai Valuev.

"We are looking for an opponent for Vitali in February or March. Huck can compete - if he accepts that RTL will broadcast the fight," Boente told Jorg Lubrik.

Young brother Wladimir Klitschko, the WBO/WBA/IBO/IBF champion, poked fun at Huck's challenge.

"Huck can come over at any time. I'll be in training camp and he can compete as a sparring partner, against me, to get used to being at heavyweight," Wladimir said.

German boxing legend Henry Maske gives Huck no shot at beating either brother.

"At the moment, Huck has no chance against Klitschko. We've seen what Wladimir did with David Haye. In the future, I wouldn't rule out [Huck's] rise to heavyweight. But he may have to do it when the Klitschko brothers are no longer standing in the ring."

Huck will defend against three or four more cupcakes before he even considers rematching Lebedev or Cunningham. All the Klitschko talk is b.s. Never happen.
