Marco Huck: Povetkin Told Me "I'm a Little Bit Scared"

By Alexander Pavlov

WBO cruiserweight champion Marco Huck, and WBA "regular" heavyweight beltholder Alexander Povetkin, exchanged words during the final press conference in Germany. They clash this Saturday night in Stuttgart.

Huck, who is quite the joker, was asked what happened when the two fighters were trading words.

Huck told the Olympic gold medal winner - 'Are you scared?'

When asked to repeat Povetkin's reply, Huck stated with a smile - "He told me 'I'm scared, I'm a little bit scared.'"

Later on in the questioning, Huck apologized for making a very bad joke regarding Povetkin. He claimed the Russian fighter did not break his leg in 2008, an injury which forced his withdrawal from a scheduled fight with Wladimir Klitschko.

After he scrapes through this one, I bet he ducks Wlad (again).
