After a brief spell of weighing each other up it was Huck who then took control of the fight from their and got off the better more effective shots.

“Today, I proved that I am first and foremost a boxer  and not just a warrior inside the ring,” Huck told DAILY SPORT Boxing after the fight, his eleventh defense of the WBO Title. “This time, I was in tip-top shape -unlike to last year’s clash with Afolabi, where I was nowhere to my current level of fitness. I was focused on the task ahead of me and it showed.”
