WBO cruiserweight world champion Marco Huck (34-1-0, 25ko) has predicted a knockout victory over WBA heavyweight world titlist Aleksandr Povetkin (23-0-0, 16ko) when they clash at Stuttgart’s Porsche Arena on Saturday, February 25: “I plan to show my fans a great fight, which will end in a KO victory for me,” said Huck during the public workout. “I will defeat Povetkin and accomplish my goal of becoming world heavyweight champion.”

In the co-featured main event, rising middleweight star Dominik Britsch (26-0-0, 9ko) faces Roberto Santos (17-6-0, 9ko) for the EU title at 160lbs. Elsewhere on the card, Marcos Nader battles Baker Barakat over ten threes and Edmund Gerber takes on Oleksiy Mazikin in a heavyweight eight rounder.

Povetkin is without trainer Atlas for Huck clash but Teddy still favours the Russian: "he's too big and hits too hard"

Povetkin is convinced his second title defence will again be a successful one: “I have had a very good preparation with Alexander Zimin, all went very well,” he stated. “I am ready for Saturday. I am here to defend my title. I will win.”
