Huck KO’s Rossi

WBO Cruiserweight Champion Marco “Captain” Huck (34-1, 25 KOs) made a successful eighth defence of his title in Ludwigsburg, Germany on Saturday night, knocking out Rogelio Rossi (17-3-1, 11 KOs) with a big right to the head in the sixth round. The brave Argentinian challenger was down and out but regained consciousness and left the ring on his feet. He was taken to hospital for precautionary checks. “I could not enjoy the victory until I knew he was fine,” Huck said afterwards. “He went down hard and I was relieved when he got back up. It was a tough fight. I had twelve rounds to break him down and I needed six. I am happy with the victory.”

The fight was televised LIVE on BoxNation Sky ch 456 here in the UK and made a second great night of boxing in a row for fight fans.

Results in breif – Cheif support IBF Intercontinental Middleweight Champion Dominik Britsch retained his belt on points over Billy Lylell with judges scoring it 117-111, 116-113 and 114-114. Heavyweight hopeful Kubrat Pulev clinched the IBF International Title with a clear points victory over Travis Walker.

Daily Sport says – This was another great win for Huck but as we forecast earlier in the week we expected Huck to stop Rossi, especially after his flight to Germany was delayed and he slept during the first press conference on Tuesday.
