Klitschko vs Huck

Cruiserweight “Fast” Eddie Chambers: “Marco Huck should worry about defending his title…not Wladimir Klitschko”

By Joseph Herron: This past week, WBO Cruiserweight title holder Marco Huck publicly announced his $5 Million proposal to universally recognized Heavyweight Champion Wladimir Klitschko before stepping in the ring with 42 year old title challenger Firat Arslan on Saturday, November 3rd, in Nordhein-Westfalen, Germany.

But moments after getting past the experienced former title holder uncomfortably, former Heavyweight title challenger and newly proclaimed Cruiserweight contender “Fast” Eddie Chambers from Philadelphia, PA, USA, had several comments regarding the reigning WBO Champ’s recent activity.

Sauerland wants Wladimir Klitschko! Money on the table – 5 Million Euros to face Huck!

The big Cruiserweight Title Fight between current WBO-Champion Marco Huck and challenger Firat Arslan in Halle/Westphalia, Germany, is just days away.

We are always willing to hold personal talks to discuss the terms for such a fight. Then we will see if they will actually put their money where their mouth is. We definitely want to make this fight happen.”

Klitschko versus Huck – perhaps the fight the heavyweight division has been waiting for. “We have been working with the Sauerlands for 18 years now and been hosting great fight nights at the Gerry Weber Stadion. A fight between Huck and Klitscko would be the absolute highlight. We will do everything possible to make this fight happen,” said Ralf Weber, General Manager of the Gerry Weber Stadion.

Weber and Sauerland have come up with a financial plan to support the Mega-Fight. Weber: “We have made a serious offer to the Klitschko-Management, which we believe should make everyone involved happy.” Continue reading
