No one will accuse Marco Huck and Ola Afolabi of not leaving it all in the ring today in Erfurt, Germany, as the two top cruiserweights went to a majority draw in a punishing war of attrition over 12 rounds. Official scores were 114-114 twice, and one card 115-113 for Huck. Bad Left Hook scored it 115-113 for Afolabi, but the fight was tremendously close, could have gone either way, and the draw ruling was 100% fair.

Huck (34-2-1, 25 KO) started slow, as Afolabi (19-2-4, 9 KO) dominated the opening five rounds with slick defense, good counter punching, and a strong ability to dictate the pace. But the challenger got tired quickly, and Huck's power punching started to take over the fight.

[ Results: Pulev KO-11 Dimitrenko / Gerber UD-8 Harris ]

The 12th round was a stunning war, with Afolabi out on his feet but still throwing bombs along with Huck. This was a tremendous fight, and we'll have more on it tomorrow, but right now I need to catch my breath before we get into Mayweather vs Cotto.
