Huck To Defend Title March 29th Against Larghetti

Unbeaten in 20 fights with twelve knockout victories to his credit – EU-Champion Mirko Larghetti will be facing Marco Huck for “The Captain’s” WBO Cruiserweight World Championship on March 29. The Velodrom in Berlin, Germany will play host to Huck’s 13th defense of the title he acquired back in August of 2009. If successful, the prodigy of coach Ulli Wegner will equalize Johnny Nelson’s record for most title defenses in the cruiserweight division.
Actually, it should have been IBF Champion Yoan Pablo Hernandez in a title defense vs. Pawel Kolodziej on March 29. However, “Iron Man” Hernandez is still suffering from gastritis after picking up a viral infect in mid-February and is not able to prepare for this date.
Huck on the other hand, who was last seen defending his WBO Belt against compatriot Firat Arslan via TKO on January 25, kept up his fitness level and is more than happy to defend his world championship in Berlin just two months later. “I was on holidays in Dubai when I was asked about the possibility to fill in for my teammate Hernandez. It will be a real cracker against Larghetti, who will suffer his first defeat against me,” said 29-year-old Huck, who is never in a dull fight. His 31-year-old opponent from Italy begs to differ: “I will shock Huck in front of his fans and rip the title away from him.”
