On April 2 at the Gerry Weber Stadium in Halle, Marco Huck (31-1, 23 KOs) will make the next defense of his WBO cruiserweight title against ex-champ Giacobbe Fragomeni (27-3-1, 11 KO). Meanwhile, Huck trainer, Ulli Wegner is telling his fighter not to underestimate his Italian opponent and predicts that it will be very tough fight.
"Fragomeni reminds me of a lot of Victor Ramirez, with the way he charges at his opponents. Giacobbe is a dangerous boxer. He can make things very hard," said the German coach.
Wegner argues that the key to victory over the 41-year-old Italian - is tactical disciplin.
"In professional boxing, you can't count on ability alone. Marco must strictly stick to the right tactics that will determine the fight for him. If Huck keeps a cool head, as he did in the fight with Ramirez, then he'll come through," the coach said.
