Marco Huck Wants a Klitschko Brother, Doesn't Care Which One

Marco Huck appeared on German television this week and challenged the Klitschko brothers, Wladimir and Vitali, to fight him in 2012, saying, "I don’t care which brother I can get my hands on, I would fight both of them right away."

Huck can be seen now in the photo above, which has been widely circulated, standing with a cardboard cutout of himself holding the Klitschko brothers, now in the form of babies.

This is very similar to the way David Haye went about eventually making a fight with Wladimir Klitschko. Like Haye, Huck is attempting to insult his way into a fight. But while Haye did take a few fights at heavyweight before facing Wladimir, and even picked up the WBA belt, Huck appears to have little interest in fighting at heavyweight unless he is facing one of the big two.

I've noted before that I don't think Huck (34-1, 25 KO) is a good matchup at all for either Wladimir (56-3, 49 KO) or Vitali (43-2, 40 KO). At about 6'1", Huck would be towered over by either brother, and it's not as if he's such a good, powerful, or explosive fighter that those advantages would be likely neutralized. We've seen both brothers fight guys his size, and the results weren't pretty. Vitali has dominated Tomasz Adamek and Albert Sosnowski in the past two years, while Wladimir had his way with David Haye (who is a bit taller), Eddie Chambers, and Ruslan Chagaev. None of those fighters had much success at all.

Still, better Huck than the likes of Jean Marc Mormeck.

What's your take here? Do you think Huck has any legitimate shot, and is it a fight you want to see, a fight you'd accept seeing, or a fight you're against?
