Cruiserweight champion Marco Huck turns 27, wants to face the Klitschko brothers
Today – on his 27th birthday – World Boxing Organization (WBO) Cruiserweight champion Marco Huck arrived in Munich where he will be part of a show event tomorrow night hosted by popular German show-master Stefan Raab. "Captain“ Huck biggest wish for his birthday: "I want the Klitschko brothers!“
While it is quite unlikely that Huck will get his hands on Vitali who will most probably retire next year, a fight between the cruiserweight champion and Wladimir Klitschko might be possible within the next years. "I am sure that I have a good chance of knocking out Wladimir. He can’t handle pressure and I certainly wouldn’t run away or be terrified by his jab like his last opponents. But even if people think that I just run my mouth and should stop dreaming I am pretty sure that I am a more credible opponent than Jean Marc Mormeck. He is far past his prime and even in his best days I would have beaten him. So if Wladimir fights him – why not take on me?“
RICKY HATTON BACK IN THE RING
RICKY HATTON returns to the ring tomorrow (sat) night but instead of throwing the punches he’ll be telling his protégé how to win.
The former two-weight world champion launches a new career as a trainer when his first fighter Adam Little boxes Billy Smith at Oldham Leisure Centre.
Ricky admits he will “nervous” before the four rounder but says: “I have picked up so much knowledge in the ring over the years and I am in the perfect position to advise my boxers outside the ring.
“I am there because I feel something for my fighter and cannot have it any other way. I will care about his welfare and health more than anything.
“The closer I get to Adam he will know I have his interest at heart.”
Hatton has trained the 20-year-old for more than a month and is impressed by the Blackpool welterweight who has won all three professional fights so far.
He added: “It will take time for me to build a reputation, but it is going so well with Adam.
“He is really talented and although we have only been together for a few weeks, you’d think we’d been together for years.”
Although all eyes will be on the ‘Hitman’ in his new career, the main event sees Manchester’s Denton Vassell make the second defence of his Commonwealth welterweight crown against Australian Samuel Colomban.
Other fights on the Oldham bill: Paul Truscott v Dezzie Higginson, Matty Askin v Roman Kracic, Kieran Farrell v Youssef Al Hamidi, Jazza Dickens v James Ancliff, Adam Little v Billy Smith and Kieran Maher v Gavin Putney.
