    Friday on a DiBella Entertainment card in Mashantucket, CT headlined by a vacant WBC United States (USNBC) 140lb title match. 8 rounds @ heavyweight.

    Hukić wore the WBO cruiserweight title from 2009 until 2015, making a record-tying (with Johnny Nelson) 13 defenses. He lost the belt to Krzysztof Głowacki and unsuccessfully challenged to recapture it from Oleksandr Usyk in 2017. Since then, Hukić moved up to heavyweight but has only fought once in twenty months, stopping forty-one year old fringe contender Yakup Sağlam.

    Guivas is 40 himself, and has a meager 14-10-3 (9) record but has fought a highly creditable roster. Of half a dozen stoppage losses, five have come early and Guivas has suffered 13 knockdowns in the pros of which I'm cognizant.

    So, bump in the road for Kap'n Huck if he wants to become a player at heavy (where he did put in one solid world-class performance, albeit years ago, versus Alexander Povetkin, in a combination of an off-night for Sasha with Huck putting on the fight of his life). Really no good excuse to let this go eight, or else at 34 he may as well hang 'em up.

    Neither man is ranked top 15 by any major org. (per

    Marco huck should just retire. he achieved more than he should have, given his Talent Level. huck was big, strong, tough and could Punch. he was lucky to have legendary german Coach uli wegner in his Corner and Sauerland promotions as his promoter (or rather his protector).

    but lets be honest, he lacked elite Level skill. and at Heavyweight he no longer has that size Advantage. throw in the fact that he has been in far too many wars..……...and you have a bad knockout waiting to happen. sure he can crush some cans…..but what would that prove?? Nothing.

    Marco will last him out of there in 3 rounds, maybe 4 and make it look easy. He looked pretty damn good disposing of Saglam last year, personally I think HW is a better fit for him at this stage of his career than CW.

    Absolutely no idea what Huck's plan at HW is but....fighting 40yo small HWs with no power and questionable punch resistance will lead him NOWHERE near a bigger title fight.

    Nothing but a confidence builder. Except he already had one in Sağlam last year, so yeah, no idea wtf he's doing..

    @Max Thunder was that a satirical pick or you know something we don't about Hukić and/or Guivas? :thinking:

    Surely Capt'n Caveman Huck can take him out inside 8 rounds... he should inside 5 with a brutal straight right, straight right, straight right, straight right, straight right combo.

    Nicholas is young, hungry, prime and ready to send Hukić's head to the raft- ok maybe not. :sisigay:

    I wouldn't have been too surprised if Nick had sprung the upset against Molina earlier this year though.

    Basically Huck's career went down the toilet once he separated from Sauerland and started his own promotional company with his brother. Total disaster.
