The big Cruiserweight Title Fight between current WBO-Champion Marco Huck and challenger Firat Arslan in Halle/Westphalia, Germany, is just days away. But already Kalle Sauerland and event organizer Ralf Weber are working on the next Mega-Fight. After Henry Maske, Axel Schulz and Marco Huck 36-year-old Wladimir Klitschko could be the next big name to appear at the Gerry Weber Stadion. The offer to the Heavyweight World Champion: 5 Mio. Euros! Wladimir's opponent: Marco Huck!

But why? Kalle Sauerland: "Bernd Boente, Klitschko's manager, has been talking to Marco directly about the possibility of fighting Klitschko. Now we have used the official channels to approach them with an offer." And the Klitschko-Camp did not take long to respond. After just 20 minutes they declined the offer! "Of course, we are now excepting them to come up with a counter offer. We are always willing to hold personal talks to discuss the terms for such a fight. Then we will see if they will actually put their money where their mouth is. We definitely want to make this fight happen."

Klitschko versus Huck - perhaps the fight the heavyweight division has been waiting for. "We have been working with the Sauerlands for 18 years now and been hosting great fight nights at the Gerry Weber Stadion. A fight between Huck and Klitscko would be the absolute highlight. We will do everything possible to make this fight happen," said Ralf Weber, General Manager of the Gerry Weber Stadion.

Weber and Sauerland have come up with a financial plan to support the Mega-Fight. Weber: "We have made a serious offer to the Klitschko-Management, which we believe should make everyone involved happy."

WBO Cruiserweight Champion Marco Huck: "I am very grateful to the Weber's and Sauerland's for trying to give me this opportunity. I will prove to everybody that I am ready for the Klitschkos."

But before that, Huck needs to win against Firat Arslan. When a possible match-up with Wladimir Klitschko could be possible has not been disclosed at this point of time. Before such fight the current WBA Super Champion Wladimir Klitschko has to take on WBA Regular Champion Alexander Povetkin before the end of February 2012, as ordered by the WBA. Weber: "We would also be interested to stage that fight in Halle/Westphalia. The winner could face Marco Huck."

Tickets for the fight on November 3 can be purchased at www.eventim.de and www.gerryweber-world.de .

Fighting Huck is at least legit. He arguably beat Povetkin. It's better than fighting Wach.

i think most of us agree huck beat povetkin. so i guess huck being in the picture isn't off base. 5 million euros & 3 million from tv deal so that's some good coin but tv contracts i just read was the roadblock. i bet there some HWs looking at that rejection wishing it was them.
