”Captain“ Huck: ”Mission USA can begin“

The wait is over. Marco Huck (38-2-1, 26 KOs) will make the next defense of his WBO Cruiserweight Title on August 14. The reigning Super Champion will take on Krysztoff Glowacki (24-0, 15 KOs), mandatory challenger to Huck`s title and number one ranked by the World Boxing Organization. This mouthwatering bout will be held in the state of New York or New Jersey with the exact location to be named very shortly. And the German has plenty of reasons to be excited about this clash.

“I will be celebrating two firsts when I step into the ring on August 14”, said Huck. “On the one hand it will be my first fight under the banner of Huck Sports Promotion, who will co-promote the bout in close cooperation with DiBella Entertainment. Furthermore I will be giving my US debut. The fight against Glowacki will be my first abroad”, an excited Huck commented. “After leaving Sauerland I said that I wanted to fight overseas. That promise is now being kept.”

But the 30 year old knows that the title fight will be anything but a walk in the park. “The Pole is unbeaten and has a good KO ratio to his name” states Huck with regards to his counterpart. “He will also have a lot of locals cheering him on, as many polish citizens live on the east coast, it will almost be like a home crowd. I am however confident, that at the end of the night, the fans both on-site and in front of their TVs, will be celebrating with me. Boxing fans in America want to be entertained by the warriors inside the squared circle and my style of fighting provides just that, entertainment. Mission USA can begin.”
