Povetkin defends (fake) WBA Heavyweight Title against Huck: Post-Fight Quotes & Wrap-Up
In one of the most exciting heavyweight title fight in recent years, WBA Champion Alexander Povetkin (24-0, 16 KOs) defended his belt against Marco Huck (34-2, 25 KOs). The 32-year-old Russian was off to the better start but seemed to tire when Huck hit him with huge power punches. The WBO Cruiserweight Champion had a huge seventh round, but Povetkin fought back and bruised his opponent's face in the 11th. Both fighters gave it their all in the 12th, with Huck firing in some more power shots to wrap up a spectacular encounter in style.
