Huck (elbow) pulls out of Arslan bout

Associated Press  |  Last updated September 09, 2013
German cruiserweight Marco Huck has pulled out of the defense of his WBO title against Firat Arslan because of a hairline fracture in his left elbow. Huck was due to fight Arslan in Stuttgart on Saturday in a rematch following his unanimous decision win over the 42-year-old German in November 2012. Huck says ''I'm really disappointed. I was in such good shape and now the whole preparation was for nothing.'' Huck needs six to eight weeks rest. There was no immediate decision on a rescheduled date. The 28-year-old Huck is 36-2-1 with 25 knockouts, while Arslan is 33-6-2 with 21.
