Marco Huck vs. Yakub Saglam Heavyweight Clash Finalized

By Per Ake Persson

Former cruiserweight champion Marco Huck steps up in weight, as previously reported, once again to the heavyweight division on June 16 in Munich and today Petko´s Box Promotion announced that Huck will face Yakub Saglam, 40-4-0-1 (37 KOs).

Saglam can punch but every time he´s stepped in level he´s been stopped and has lost inside the distance to Manuel Charr, Odlanier Solis and Joseph Parker.

At the same time Huck has looked past his prime in his last few fights so Saglam is in as a live underdog.

Huck will win this on pure experience and skill level. But he will do very little at HW. He is at risk of demeaning himself to being just a gate keeper.

Huck back to heavyweight? Looks like all cruiserweights gonna move up soon.

I can dig it! I'm sure it will be a big draw in Germany and is a nice first step back into the HW division for Huck. Could be a rough fight stylistically though, both guys are pretty dirty fighters
