Boxing Picks: 28 year-old Marco Huck is a strong European fighter that always come to fight in top condition. The 6’1″ Huck is a veteran despite his age and will be fighting on familiar ground in his native Germany. The well-schooled Povetkin shouldn’t have to look far to find Huck’s available chin dangling in the air however. Huck blocks punches O.K. with his gloves and elbow’s but the heavy handed Povetkin will be able to get some shots in around the gloves. Huck moves his chin very little and his thirst for exchanging toe-to-toe will make him a bloody KO victim by night’s end.

Povetkin is a pressure fighter that wears down opponents with bodyhots and powerpunches in bunches. The Russian’s in-fighting and jab have improved under trainer Teddy Atlas and those subtleties will produce a KO against the slower and smaller Huck. Marco Huck can bang for a cruiserweight but against a true heavyweight with a solid set of whiskers he will have difficulty making a dent.
