Marco Huck could make his way to HBO soon, Hershman says he's a fan

Martin Rose

Marco Huck and his team met with HBO Sports' Ken Hershman recently, and it sounds as if the cruiserweight titleholder could make his way to the United States soon.

After a meeting with Ken Hershman, Marco Huck and his team are confident that the standout cruiserweight titleholder will soon be seen on HBO in the United States, with Hershman saying that Huck's action style could make him a star in the States.

Huck (37-2-1, 26 KO) has been a top cruiserweight for the past five years, and also had a one-off heavyweight bout against Alexander Povetkin in 2012. Though smaller than Povetkin, Huck gave the then-unbeaten titleholder a stern test, and his majority decision loss was fairly controversial.

The 29-year-old Huck, a Serbian-born fighter based in Germany, has gone 3-0-1 since that loss to Povetkin, drawing against Ola Afolabi, which he made up for with a win, and beating Firat Arslan twice, though the first time had its own minor controversy.

Do you think Huck could be a star in the States? Might HBO be looking to invest in the cruiserweight division, which has never been very hot in the U.S., but certainly could be with the right promotion? Or will Huck have to move up to heavyweight if he hopes to make a name here?
