Marco Huck is still the WBO Cruiserweight World Champion. Before a crowd of 5,000 spectators at Max-Schmeling-Halle in Berlin, Germany, he beat his familiar foe Ola Afolabi. Throughout the whole twelve rounds he showed a disciplined performance and won on points by scores of 117-111, 115-113 and a somewhat surprising 114-114. Huck now holds two wins over Afolabi, along with a draw, over the course of three fights against one another.
