Huck vs Usyk: Huck ready to entertain in Berlin on September 9

Marco Huck met the German press in his hometown Berlin at the famous Restaurant Borchardt ahead of his Ali Trophy quarter-final with Ukranian Aleksandr Usyk September 9 at the Max-Schmeling-Halle, Berlin.

Huck: “It is going to be very nice to fight in Berlin, but I would also fight Usyk on the moon,” said the German cruiserweight. “Usyk is a well-schooled boxer and I cannot wait to step into the ring with him.”

Huck’s trainer, Conny Mittermeier: “Marco is now already in very good shape, almost at his fight weight and he is motivated. I believe in a premature victory for Marco.”

Huck also promises a dramatic fight: “When I fight, there’s always something going on, it’s never boring, but spectacular. Huck fans around the world know that a Huck fight means entertainment. When I reach my potential on fight night I can beat everyone! I am very optimistic and confident that I will beat Usyk.”

German Leon Bunn (5-0, 5 KOs) vs. Tomasz Gargula (18-7-1, 5 KOs) from Poland and German Patrick Wojcicki (9-0, 4 KOs) vs. French Fouad El Massoudi (14-9, 1 KOs) are confirmed on the undercard of the World Boxing Super Series quarter-final clash between Aleksandr Usyk and Marco Huck.

Organised by Comosa AG, the World Boxing Super Series will kick off in September 2017, featuring the Cruiserweight and Super Middleweight divisions. In each weight class, eight elite boxers will battle it out in a bracket-style elimination tournament, with four quarter-finals (fall 2017), two semi-finals (early 2018) and one final (May 2018). This makes for seven top fights per weight class, and a total of 14 fights in Season One to be staged in premier venues around the globe. The winners of the World Boxing Super Series will rightfully receive The Greatest Prize in Boxing, the Muhammad Ali Trophy.
