Marco Huck (born 11 November 1984) is a German professional boxer. He is fighting in the cruiserweight division where he is the current WBO cruiserweight champion.

Career[edit]

Muamer started Taekwondo and kickboxing at the age of ten. As an amateur kickboxer he had some success winning a gold medal at first the W.A.K.O European championships in 2002 and then at the same organizations world championships in 2003 at the age of 18. Despite success in Full-Contact kickboxing he decided to switch completely to boxing, having also participated in the sport since he was 15.[1]

In the build-up he bested amateur stars Michael Simms and Claudio Rîşco and had his first major fight against contender (rated in the Ring Magazine) Pietro Aurino. In a typical wild affair he was butted by the Italian and kicked him in the stomach in return. When he wasn't disqualified the Italian stormed out of the ring in disgust and was declared loser. Right afterwards he outpointed another world class fighter in undefeated (23–0) contender Vadim Tokarev this time without controversy. He was rated No. 7 by the Ring Magazine when he fought Steve Cunningham, however Huck was knocked out by Cunningham in his first title defense.[citation needed]

After the loss to Cunningham he has since won six straight fights by knockout. On March 13, 2010, Huck won the WBO Cruiserweight title from Victor Emilio Ramírez. He has since defended this title eight times against Ola Afolabi, Adam Richards, Brian Minto, Matt Godfrey, Denis Lebedev, Ran Nakash, Hugo Garay and Rogelio Omar Rossi.[citation needed]

One day before Huck's WBA heavyweight championship fight with Alexander Povetkin he is reported to have received a death threat. A letter was received by Sauerland Events addressed to Huck that read “Now you are hunted for along as it takes for us to get you. Also your family is in great danger. We are finally fed up with your boasting.” The letter also mentions Huck’s expensive Berlin villa, threatens Huck’s trainer Ulli Wegner and warns the Serbia-born Huck to “go back to where you came from.” Huck told BILD, “I’m not afraid of anything or anyone, but I’m worried about my family.” Sauerland had to increase security measures surrounding the fight.[2]
