Huck(lright) too strong for Godfrey(left)
Marco Huck produced a powerful display of punching power at the Messehalle in Erfurt, Germany on Saturday night to retain his WBO cruiserweight title against American Matt Godfrey.
Huck, 30-1-(23), floored Godfrey for the first time in round two and again in the third after punishing him with a series of hurtful punches, though the knockdown was discounted because of a low blow. The fourth round saw Huck again clearly dominate Godfrey before dropping him twice in round five, the second of which forced Godfrey,20-2-(10), through the ropes.
The end came after 2.18 of the fifth round when referee Rodriguez had finally seen enough of the one sided action.
On the undercard undefeated heavyweight hope Robert Helenius, 13-0-(8), floored Gregory Tony four times before British referee Howard Foster stopped the fight at 0.39 of round six. Helenius claimed the vacant European Union heavyweight title.
In a light-heavyweight bout Dustin Dirks improved to 16-0-(11), after knocking out Sami Selesmaa after 2.41 of the second round.
