Cruiserweight legend Marco Huck has switched up his career in a massive way as he has relocated to New York in order to work with one of the world's most highly respected trainers Andre Rozier.
Huck is no stranger to anyone in world boxing, having destructively demolished many of the main cruiserweights of the last decade, which included 13 defences of his world title. The former IBO and WBO cruiserweight champion is now eyeing a run in the heavyweight division and explained his decision to move stateside to work with Rozier and move up to heavyweight.
The Captain said, "I wanted a fresh start and to work with a top class trainer like Andre Rozier and I have found a new home in the USA. I am training harder than I have ever in my career and I know that this change will only bring me success in the Heavyweight division.
"Training really is another level with Andre and the Havoc team and I promise everyone they will see a more destructive Marco Huck than they have ever seen before. The Havoc team are really the best and I am blessed to be working with them and I am very grateful for this opportunity.”
Rozier has guided multiple world champions to success with the most notable being Daniel Jacobs. Huck discussed his plans now he is set to campaign in the heavyweight division, “I want to be a 2 weight world champion and I believe this move in training camp and not having to cut weight will make a massive difference in my performance and I will become heavyweight champion.
“I will fight anyone in the heavyweight division if it helps me get towards my goal on becoming heavyweight champion of the world.
Brooklyn legend and Captain of Team Havoc Andre Rozier gave his assessment on his new big punching charge, “Marco is a legend in boxing, we are all aware of how he can fight, but we are looking to add to Marco’s game and that will be the ingredients to bringing him success in the heavyweight division.
“He has settled very well and all of the boys like him in the gym. The camp, in general, is buzzing, all the boys push each other and that is only helping Marco finally push himself to reach his full potential. We still haven’t seen the best of Marco Huck.”
