Kellie Sauerland is set to offer a bounty of €5 million for Wladimir Klitschko to face Marco Huck. This would mean two of the best heavyweight and cruiserweights meeting each other in early 2013 and promises to be one of the fights of the year.
The reason I’m so confident this would be a great fight is Marco Huck. His last two fights have been edge of your seat stuff, from his stand-and-trade sluggathon loss to Alexander Povetkin at heavyweight, to his majority decision draw with Ola Afolabi that had the crowd on their feet. Huck doesn’t mess around in the ring, instead he wants to throw everything at his opponent until either one of them drops or the bell goes.
A problem Wladimir has faced over the last few years is a lack of opponents who can make a fight of it. Tony Thompson and Jean Marc Mormeck were fights Wlad was completely in control of, where David Haye had his moments but couldn't keep up a sustained effect effort. His punches were limp.
Wladimir has faced criticism throughout his entire career for having a boring fighting style, something David Haye noticed and used in his public relations run up to their fight last July. Haye said:
"This was once one of the great prizes in sport, Klitschko has killed that. I hold him responsible for the huge fall off in interest in the heavyweight division. He has bored us for years."
Despite sometimes being boring, Klitschko's style is effective and has led to him winning sixteen fights in a row This is good for his win record, but it is poor for his fans. The man does not sell as much on PPV as he could because his matches lack excitement, and the reason for that is opponents who won't take risks because they are in awe of him.
Marco Huck is in awe of nobody and he will make Wlad struggle for his win. He will make Wladimir Klitschko stand in the middle of the ring and trade with him.
