Marco Huck

Huck actually practiced Taekwando and kickboxing before becoming a boxer. As an amateur kickboxer he had some success, winning a gold medal at first the W.A.K.O European championships in 2002 and 2003 at the age of 18. Despite his success in kickboxing, Huck decided to switch completely to boxing. In 2004, he proved himself in sparring for promoter Sauerland and turned pro with recognized trainer Ulli Wegner at his corner. As a boxer, he showed an aggressive style, good stamina, power, a decent chin and a strong will to win, making him a very pleasing fighter to watch. In three years, he held a perfect record of 19-0, until he got his first World title shot against IBF Cruiserweight Champion Steve Cunningham. Huck went on to loss by TKO in the 12th round.

Right afterwards he outpointed another world class fighter in undefeated (23-0) contender Vadim Tokarev this time without controversy. After the loss to Cunningham, Huck won six

straight fights by knockout and on March 13,2010 Huck won the WBO Cruiserweight title from Victor Emilio Ramírez. He has since defended this title seven times against Ola Afolabi, Adam Richards, Brian Minto, and Matt Godfrey, Denis Lebedev, Ran Nakash, and Hugo Hernan Garay. His latest fight was a rematch against Ola Afolabi, which once again was a very close fight. Both men fought to a draw.
