Marco Huck calls out Wladimir Klitschko; Eyes heavyweight move


By @Livefight

Marco Huck, 29, defended his WBO cruiserweight crown with a sixth round KO of Firat Arslan in Stuttgart on Saturday, but now says he wants to go on to be champion at Heavyweight.

"My desire is to fight against the best in the world. And I hope the chance to fight Klitschko will now finally come," said Huck "When I'm in top shape, no one in the world can beat me. Neither at cruiserweight nor at heavyweight. I can only beat myself."

When asked if he could beat the dominant Wladimir Klitschko he said "Why not?,"

"The last 30 no-names he has already fought all lost against him, but I have already fought battles that people want to see.

"They want to see a Huck show because they know that at any minute, anything can happen."

Huck would need to grow 4 inches in height and put on 40+ pounds of body weight to be a physical match for the WBA,WBO,IBF and IBO champion. However his trainer believes he can do it, and do it quickly.

"Marco will be a heavyweight champion by January 1 2015," said Huck's trainer Wegner.
