Huck Box Promotion and Petko´s Box Promotion join forces for a show in Munich on June 16.
Topping the bill is former cruiserweight king Marco Huck - now back at heavyweight. Huck fought Alexander Povetkin for the WBA standard heavyweight title in 2012, but lost a close call to a champ who was obviously not in the best condition.
