Marco “Captain” Huck will defend his WBO Cruiserweight Title against Ran Nakash on April 2.
After Giacobbe Fragomeni pulled out due to a cut injury from sparring, Huck (31-1, 23 KOs) will now make his sixth defence against the unbeaten challenger from Israel (25-0, 18 KOs).
“I don´t care about the late change,” Huck said. “It will not exactly be a walk in the park, but as the world champion, I will find a way to deal with it. I will be prepared for Nakash and I will defeat him just like I defeat anybody who wants to take the belt away from me.”
Huck is currently putting the finishing touches on his preparation at Team Sauerland´s training camp base in the solitude of Kienbaum, Germany. “It has been exhausting, but it has been worth it,” added Huck. “I will not disappoint my fans at the Gerry Weber Stadium in Halle. But I am prepared for a tough night.”
Nakash has yet to taste defeat as a professional boxer. “He is a tough and very skilled guy,” Sauerland sports director Hagen Doering said. “He has been in full training as he was preparing for a fight. It will be an interesting match-up.”
