Marco “Captain” Huck will make the third defence of his European Cruiserweight Title in Bamberg on May 9 when he takes on former world champion Firat Arslan. “I have great memories of Bamberg,” Huck said. “In May 2007, I defeated Vadim Tokarev in a title eliminator. It was a great fight – the crowd support really was superb. I look forward to returning.” Huck´s meeting with Arslan will certainly be a special one, and it is sure to draw a lot of interest in Germany. “It is about the honour,” Huck said. “It will be the fight of two boxers who are under contract with German promoters. Such meetings are special. I will definitely not disappoint my manager and my coach. I am very confident of winning.” Captain Huck clinched the European title last September when he stopped Jean Marc Monrose in the 12th round. The explosive 24-year-old has knocked out Fabio Tuiach and Geoffrey Batello since then.
