Ola Alofabi Vs Marco Huck

1 post in this topic

On Saturday, June 8, WBO cruiserweight champion Marco Huck defends his title against Ola Afolabi at the Max Schmeling Halle in Berlin, Germany. This will be the third meeting between the two. Huck won a close unanimous decision in December 2009, and they fought to a draw in May 2012.

Cruiserweight is the Rodney Dangerfield of boxing weight classes. For some reason, the not-quite heavyweights get less love and attention than anybody else, aside from the very smallest fighters, campaigning below 118.

In mixed martial arts, the 205-pound light heavyweight division is the glamor class and always has been. But in the United States, at least, 200-pound boxers go largely ignored.

The situation is slightly different in Europe, and Huck-Afolabi III will pack the house in Berlin. It should be a competitive and highly entertaining bout. These are two high-level professionals who know each other well.

Should be a good fight and it's live on Boxnation this Saturday.

 

The last fight was a war. This is round 12 of the bout.
