Huck vs. Arslan purse bid!

Marco “Captain” Huck (24-1, 19 KOs) will return to the ring in May to defend his European cruiserweight title against former world champion Firat Arslan (29-4, 18 KOs). Team Sauerland won today’s purse bid in Rome with an offer of 514,000 euros. “We are delighted that Marco will defend his title on a Sauerland show,” General Manager Chris Meyer said of the mandatory defense. “The fight will be staged in May. We will announce the date and the venue within the next two weeks.” Captain Huck, who has dusted Geoffrey Batello and Fabio Tuiach since winning the title from Jean Marc Monrose last September, is looking forward to the showdown against Arslan. “We are both under contract with German promoters,” the 24-year-old said. “That makes the fight very special. It will be very interesting for the German boxing fans. I am really looking forward to it.”
