Captain Huck Right Back Into Action with Another Title Defense
Marco “Captain” Huck (28-1, 21 KOs) will return to the ring on May 1 when he defends his WBO Cruiserweight Title against Brian “The Beast” Minto (34-3, 21 KOs) in Oldenburg. Huck comes off a spectacular third-round TKO victory over Adam Richards in Berlin. He is currently in the Unites States and will attend King Arthur Abraham’s Super Six World Boxing Classic clash with Andre Dirrell in Detroit this Saturday. “After taking care of business against Richards, I am not looking to put aside Minto,” Huck said. “He is a strong guy but there is no way he will defeat me.”
Huck boasts a fearsome KO ratio of 75 percent. “Minto is tough, so I will be prepared for 12 hard rounds, but everybody knows that I love to please my fans and give them a knock-out win,” he added. “It is my goal to beat him clearly.” Minto came to fame in Germany when he spoiled former heavyweight contender Axel Schulz´ hyped comeback with a sixth-round TKO victory in October 2006.
Marco Huck is currently rated as the number 2 cruiserweight in the world according to the ProBoxing-Fans.com cruiserweight division rankings. The only man ahead of him is Steve Cunningham, who holds a victory over Huck but has been largely inactive over the past few years due to unfortunate promotional difficulties with Don King.
