Long time German boxing icon Marco Huck, 38-2-1, 26 KO, defends his WBO Cruiserweight title against Krzyzstof Glowacki of Poland, 24-0, 15 KO, Saturday, August 14th. It’s the first time the two have ever fought in America but they should have plenty of their native emigres in attendance when they square up at the Prudential Center Newark, New Jersey.
Huck made the change to self-promotion after his contract with Sauerland finally expired. Hard to know if he will fight here long when so many worlds of opportunities still exist for him in Germany and even Russia, but it’s here in America for now with his new trainer Don House. Glowacki looks to be a solid physical challenge, yet without the experience of Huck who could set a new world record for cruiserweight title defenses if he wins. He may be looking past Glowacki though as he’s talking about defending against Roy Jones Jr next, but then again, that might just be some marketing nonsense to get Huck’s name out in America for recognition.
I’m expecting Huck makes this action fight with Glowacki Polish fans dominating the cheers and screams. We’ll be seeing how that works for him as he’ll have to greatly exceed his best performance to beat Huck who may no longer be the best cruiser, but is still tough, can punch, and a lot craftier about how to get the job done.
