Huck retains WBO title for 13th time

WBO cruiserweight champion Marco Huck (38-2-1, 26 KOs) scored a twelve round unanimous decision over previously unbeaten Mirko Larghetti (21-1, 13 KOs) on Saturday night at Gerry Weber Stadium in Halle, Germany. Huck retained his title for the 13th time, equalling the cruiserweight mark of Johnny Nelson, who was looking on with distain at ringside. Huck pressed the action the whole fight, but just when it looked like the very tough Larghetti would go the distance, Huck laid him out with a vicious barrage of punches as the final bell sounded. Referee Jack Reiss ruled that the KO punch landed before the final bell but Larghetti went down after the bell so there was no count and the bout went to the scorecards where Huck won 116-112, 116-112, 118-110.

Super middleweight Vincent Feigenbutz (15-1, 14 KOs) annihilated Slavisa Simeunovic (14-9, 12 KOs) in the first round. Feigenbutz dropped Simeunovic twice and the bout was waved off after Feigenbutz battered Simeunovic further.

Unbeaten light heavyweight Enrico Koelling (15-0, 5 KOs) won when Giuseppe Brischetto (12-2, 6 KOs) didn’t come out for round eight.

Carl Froch talks about a possible fight with James DeGale, says it “would be huge.”

By James Slater

It seems there is, after all, a good chance WBA/IBF super-middleweight champion Carl Froch will meet yet another fellow Brit in his next outing. In his previous two fights, Froch faced Londoner George Groves, and “The Cobra” stated that he would next like to get a big fight under the bright lights of Las Vegas (an opportunity Froch more than deserves). For a time it looked as though the 37-year-old would face Mexican Son of a Legend Julio Cesar Chavez Junior, but that fight looks unlikely, and now a defence against IBF mandatory challenger James DeGale looks a real possibility.

According to Froch, who spoke with Kevin Francis of The Star, the Nottingham warrior feels a fight between he and the once-beaten DeGale (by Groves, on points) “would be huge.”

“Any contest between me and him would be huge,” Froch said. “It would be a domestic fight between a legend of the sport and an Olympic champion. He wants to be the first British gold medallist to go on and win a world title and a fight between us would create plenty of interest.” (more…)

Nelson arrives in Germany to watch Huck try to tie his record

Former WBO cruiserweight champion Johnny Nelson will be at ringside tonight as current WBO cruiserweight champion Marco Huck will attempt to equal Nelson’s record for the most title defenses in the cruiserweight division when he faces Mirko Larghetti at the Gerry Weber Stadium.

But Nelson isn’t on hand to cheer on ‘Captain Huck.’ In fact, he’s not a fan of Huck at all. “There are only a handful of world champions who can truly be considered the best in the world and in my opinion Marco Huck is not one of them,” says Nelson. “No disrespect to the kid but to get people to sit up, pay attention and consider him the best, he needs to fight outside of Germany, away from his home comforts. I fought all over the world and defended my title against the very best. I proved that I was the top fighter in the division. At the moment Huck has a plastic crown, to make it gold he needs to prove himself outside of Germany.” (more…)

Late result: Tahdooahnippah tops Sneed

Formerly world rated middleweight “Comanche Boy” George Tahdooahnippah (34-1-2, 24 KOs) cruised to a one-sided unanimous decision victory over ten rounds to the very game Tracy Sneed (27-3, 21 KOs) last Saturday at the Remington Park Casino in Oklahoma City, OK. Scores were 97-92 by all three judges. Tahdooahnippah was in control of the fight every round. Sneed was awarded a questionable knockdown in the third round. Tahdooahnippah rebounded by dominating every round with his speed and defense. This was Tahdooahnippah’s first ten round bout that went the distance and was very confident in his conditioning. “I was very confident in my skills and speed. I felt tremendous. As always, I wish I could have knocked him out, but I’ll settle for the victory. I will take a few days off and be back in the gym to get ready for my next fight.” Tahdooahnippah picked up the vacant Oklahoma State Super Middleweight title with his victory over Sneed. The Comanche Boy looks to get back in the ring in as soon as possible with details soon to follow. The event was brought to you by HD Boxing.
