WBO Cruiserweight World Champion Marco Huck (37-2-1, 26 KOs) and challenger Mirko Larghetti (21-0, 13 KOs) met in the final press conference before their fight this Saturday at the Gerry Weber Stadium in Halle/Westphalia, Germany.
During the presser, Marco Huck told the media “I am not tired to repeat myself – I will make spaghetti out of Larghetti! Listen good to me Salvatore, I will break your fighter to pieces. Mirko Larghetti is still unbeaten and therefore he has a certain kind of self-confidence. But come August 30 it will be gone as he is about to witness that I am in a complete different class. Regarding all my future plans I can just say that I am currently focused on the fight this Saturday and you may well ask me on Sunday about them.”
Mirko Larghetti stated “The better man is going to win. I am well prepared and thankful for this chance. On Saturday, I will make my dream come true and become the WBO Cruiserweight World Champion.”
Kalle Sauerland: The GERRY WEBER Stadium is most famous for its tennis tournament. But on August 30 there will no game, set and match but fistic fireworks instead. Marco gets the chance to write history with his 13th title defense. However, we plan bigger and better things for him – either unification or a step-up to heavyweight – on US soil.
Salvatore Cherchi: Every reign has come to an end. Marco Huck had a lot of success in the past but come Saturday a new era is about to start and that will be Mirko Larghetti’s!
