Marco Huck's Sauerland Deal Extended To April 2015

By Rick Reeno

A few weeks ago, WBO cruiserweight champion Marco Huck (38-2-1, 26KOs) announced that he was ending his promotional association with career promoter Sauerland Event.

Huck, who plans to push forward under his own promotional banner, says his promotional deal with Sauerland expires at the end of December.

But has been advised otherwise. Lawyers are now involved, who are confident Huck's agreement actually expires at the end of April.

Basically, Huck's promotional pact with Sauerland would have run out at the end of the year, but two fight postponements have extended his contract.

Huck withdrew from his original March date against Mirko Larghetti. The fight then took place on August 30th. Huck also withdrew from last September's rematch date with Firat Arslan. It was pushed back to January 25th. The gaps in time have pushed Huck's contract to the final week of April.

BoxingScene was also told that Huck is already on the hunt for a new trainer, because his current coach Ulli Wegner is contracted with Sauerland and works with several of their fighters. Wegner is staying loyal to their banner.

This might mean the Nelson fight comes off. RIP Johnny.

Huck really needs to look for unification! Otherwise he'll just be another nobody!
