Marco Huck vs. Rogelio Rossi on Saturday; 24/7 Pacquiao/Marquez episode 1 on Saturday; Eloy Perez vs. Ira Terry on October 28th
Rogelio Rossi slept through today´s press training after his arrival in Germany was delayed for more than 24 hours. A volcanic ash cloud had grounded his original flight out of Buenos Aires, and it was not before Tuesday morning that Rossi (17-2-1, 11 KOs) eventually made it to Stuttgart airport. Instead of participating in the media work-out, he went to his hotel to get some sleep. “My punches will wake him up on Saturday,” World Boxing Organization (WBO) Cruiserweight Champion Marco “Captain” Huck (33-1, 24 KOs) said. “But only to put him back to sleep immediately. I have trained for a hard fight because all challengers from Argentina are tough and aggressive. I want to put on another spectacular performance for my fans. It will be an entertaining night on Saturday.”
