Potential Klitschko fight overshadows Huck-Arslan

The cruiserweight title Fight between current WBO champion Marco Huck and challenger Firat Arslan in Halle/Westphalia, Germany, is just days away, but it’s the name of WBA/IBF/WBO/IBO heavyweight champion Wladimir Klitschko that is currently the main topic of conversation.

“Bernd Boente, Klitschko’s manager, has been talking to Marco directly about the possibility of fighting Klitschko. Now we have used the official channels to approach them with an offer,” said promoter Kalle Sauerland, who claims the Klitschko camp turned down a $5 million offer within 20 minutes. “Of course, we are now excepting them to come up with a counter offer. We are always willing to hold personal talks to discuss the terms for such a fight. Then we will see if they will actually put their money where their mouth is. We definitely want to make this fight happen.”

Huck, meanwhile, is doing his best David Haye impression, trying to provoke Wladimir into the ring with insults, referring to Wlad as his “girlfriend” and saying “Vitali is a man who fought real fights, while Wladimir lost pitifully and never asked for a rematch.”
