Winning Ugly: “The Kapt’n” Huck decisions Kucher

Dmytro Kucher - Anyone who has followed the course of Marco Huck's dozen year, fourty-four bout boxing career is likely to say a couple of things about him as a fighter.

Anyone who has followed the course of Marco Huck’s dozen year, fourty-four bout boxing career is likely to say a couple of things about him as a fighter.

The first thing that can be said is that his style isn’t the most aesthetically pleasing to watch. In fact, I’m being charitable when I write that. Huck’s approach to fighting isn’t pretty at all. It’s actually quite the opposite. This is a fighter who often lunges in awkwardly with rainbow right hands and wide volleys of hooks, and who spends a lot of time grappling and mauling opponents in close, all the while clubbing them with whatever hand might be free at the time. He’s an unorthodox and occasionally crude brawler who doesn’t seem particularly concerned about the rules at any given point, or about where his punches might make contact on his foe’s person. Really, to say Huck (40-3-1, 27 KO’s) isn’t at all pretty is probably understating matters. To refer to his style as being “bowling shoe ugly” is much better way of describing him in action.

Results: Marco Huck defeats Dmytro Kucher, looks poor

Dmytro Kucher - IBO cruiserweight champion Marco Huck (40-3-1, 27 KOs) defeated Dmytro Kucher (24-2-1, 18 KOs) by a tougher than expected 12 round unanimous decision on Saturday night in front of a large crowd of Huck supporters at the TUI Arena in Hanover, Germany. Huck took a lot of shots in the process of winning the fight against the 32-year-old Kucher, but he did more than enough to get the decision. Despite winning, Huck looked pretty shot and over-the-hill to me. Huck was always a badly flawed fighter from the get go, but he looked just awful tonight. I think age and the negative effects of ring wear is starting to rear its ugly head with Huck. If I'm Huck's management, I'm thinking cash out right about now.
