Huck-Larghetti set for August 30th

Martin Rose

Cruiserweight titlist, Marco Huck's, defense of his WBO strap had been originally scheduled for March 29th, however, a fractured thumb during a sparring session forced the fight to be moved back to August 30th.

It looks like Marco Huck (37-2-1, 26 KOs) is all ready to defend his title against Mirko Larghetti (21-0, 13 KOs), after a temporary setback due to a sparring session which left Huck's thumb injured. Should Huck win, he would tie the cruiserweight division record for most title defenses with Johnny Nelson. Never mind the fact that this is a major step up for Mirko Larghetti, who has never faced any serious level opponents to date, and that certainly hasn't had any affect on his confidence.

"I was ready back then and I am even more ready now," Larghetti said. "Hopefully, Huck is more careful with his hands this time. I want to show him and the boxing fans that I am a better fighter and the man to put an end to his title reign."

Huck, not to be outdone, responded by saying:

"This will be Larghetti's first and last world title fight. When I am done with him he will wish not ever having shared the ring with me. I will make spaghetti out of Larghetti."

Spaghetti out of Larghetti...that's quite riveting stuff right there. In fact, if that doesn't get your juices flowing for a rough-and-tumble affair I'm not sure what will. Let's just hope they can make this fight a little more compelling between the ropes than they have through the media.
