Huck Says Afolabi Trilogy Will Land in March or April

By Alexander Pavlov

According to WBO cruiserweight champion Marco Huck (35-2-1, 25KOs), the trilogy match with Ola Afolabi (19-2-4, 9KOs) will land in late March or early April. Huck admits that he "doesn't want to fight Afolabi again" but the the fight is "necessary" because the WBO ordered the match.

They fought twice in the past. Huck won a close twelve round decision over Afolabi in 2009 and they went to draw last year, but many felt Huck did enough to win the rematch.
