The decision of the World Boxing Council to confirm that the bout between Marco Huck and Mairis Briedis at April 1st in Dortmund, Germany, will be for the WBC cruiserweight championship of the world was the main topic at the press conference today.
“From my childhood it was a dream for me to fight for the green belt of the WBC”, Marco Huck said. “Now this dream comes true. It is a maximum motivation for me.”
Hard hitting opponent Mairis Briedis (21 wins, 18 K.o.`s) says that the staus of the fight makes not a big difference for him. “Of course it is a honour to fight for the WBC belt, but it will be the same Marco Huck in ring like before. I prepared very well and thake this really seriously, of course. I fight with a warrior and that means everything can happen. I have no plan for a knockout but I want to fight with a lot of tactical discipline.”
Marco Huck is the IBO champion of the world and he wants more. “My opponent ist strong. I know this. But I am stronger. If I wouldn´t believe in this I would be in the wrong place. And of course – I alsway want to win by knockout!”
