Bad news for boxing fans as the Sauerland Event show on March 29th at the Velodrom in Berlin, Germany has been cancelled.
WBO Cruiserweight Champion Marco Huck, who was aiming to defend his title for a record thirteenth time against Mirko Larghetti, has suffered a fractured thumb in sparring and is now unable to compete.
Huck’s injury is the latest in a series of unfortunate events that has led to the cancellation. The WBO Champion was himself a late addition to the show, stepping in for stable mate Yoan Pablo Hernandez, who was originally set to top the bill but had to withdraw due to a viral infection. It’s been an odd saga of events which must be frustrating not only for the fighters, but for the fans.
“I cannot remember having this much bad luck with a single event,’’ said promoter Kalle Sauerland. ‘’First, we had to postpone the show due to Hernandez suffering from a lengthy illness and now it’s more bad news with Huck breaking his thumb. In the end it’s all about the health of our fighters. I am sorry for all the fans who were looking forward to this show.”
