After ten years of a very successful working relationship, WBO cruiserweight champion Marco Huck (38-2-1, 26KOs) is planning to break out on his own, according to statements made by the fighter to Bild Sport.
Huck, 29-years-old, has formed his own promotional company - Huck Sports Promotion - and has his brother Kenan as CEO. Huck's contract with Sauerland Event expires in December and boxer is not planning to renew the deal.
He apparently wants to be free agent in order to secure a major fight against WBA/IBO/WBO/IBF heavyweight champion Wladimir Klitschko. He says the promotional scuffles between Sauerland and Klitschko, and the various TV deals, were standing in his way of getting Klitschko.
Huck stated: "I am very grateful to Wilfried Sauerland. But I've decided to take the reins into their own hands. As a great champion I want to be independent. Now I am free for Klitschko. I dream of big fights, even in the United States. I want to fight the best. Klitschko is at the top for me. I want to leave in peace and hope that he will place with no obstacles in the way. It was a successful time together."
