ESPN3 to Present Exclusive Live U.S. Coverage of Huck vs. Arslan II on Jan. 25:
ESPN3 will present exclusive live coverage in the U.S. of the 12-round WBO Cruiserweight title bout between defending titleholder Marco Huck (36-2-1, 25 KOs) and former titleholder Firat Arslan (33-6-2, 21 KOs) Saturday, Jan. 25, at 5 p.m. ET.
The fight, from Hanns-Martin-Schleyer Halle in Stuttgart, Germany, will be the second fight between the two boxers. Huck won a unanimous decision over Arslan in their first meeting last November. The fight will also be carried in the Caribbean on ESPN’s broadband service ESPN Play.
ESPN3 has been picking up some more fights over the past few months, which is great for fight fans. Combined with the continuing efforts of channels such as AWE, formerly Wealth TV, the new Golden Boy Live series on Fox Sports, and more, there’s a whole lot more boxing currently available on TV for fans in the states!
Huck vs. Arslan II isn’t necessarily highly anticipated for fans here, but the first fight was competitive and Huck often makes for entertaining scraps.
