European Cruiserweight Champion Marco “Captain” Huck has warned Geoffrey Battelo he will be in for a “hot dance” when the two former sparring partners clash on Saturday night. Today they showed their skills at the public work-out in Meißen, where Huck displayed his huge punching power during three rounds of padwork with coach Ulli Wegner. “The fists are already flying quite well,” he said. “It will be even better on Saturday. Battelo will be in for a hot dance. I have worked hard to become the European Champion and I will defend my title no matter what.” Battelo is not short of confidence either. “I have come here to win the title,” he stated. “Huck and I used to have very hard sparring sessions in the past. I know how to beat him.”
Also in action will be IBF Intercontinental Cruiserweight Champion Enad Licina, who defends his title against Colombia´s Jose Luis Herrera. “I will take home the title,” the challenger stated. On the undercard, Alexander Abraham will make a first defence of the EE-EU Light-Middleweight Title when he comes face-to-face with unbeaten Nikola Stevanovic. “He is a strong opponent but I am stronger,” the younger brother of IBF Middleweight champion King Arthur said. “I will leave the ring victorious.”
