Marco Huck vs Firat Arslan rematch set for September 14

Thomas Starke

September 14 just got a little bigger for boxing fans, as Marco Huck will face Firat Arslan in a rematch Stuttgart, Germany.

Marco Huck will defend the WBO cruiserweight title against Firat Arslan on September 14 in Germany, a rematch of a very close fight from 2012, which saw Huck retain his title by unanimous decision.

Huck (36-2-1, 25 KO) defeated Ola Afolabi convincingly (even though it was a majority decision) in a third fight between those two on June 8, and now will look to finish an outstanding issue with Arslan (33-6-2, 21 KO). The 42-year-old Arslan made a surprising comeback to contention last year, drawing with Alexander Alekseev and then taking Huck to the limit.

Now, he's got another shot, in what may be his final opportunity to win a world title. It would be his first world title since he briefly held the WBA belt in 2007-08, which he won from Virgil Hill (now a Hall of Famer) and lost to Guillermo Jones.

For Huck, it will be the 12th defense of the belt he won in 2009 from Victor Emilio Ramirez.
