Marco Huck Defeats Mirko Larghetti And Ties Historic Title Defenses At Cruiserweight
Marco “Captain” Huck (38-2-1, 26 KO’s) handed formerly undefeated Mirko Larghetti 21-1, 13 KO’s) his very first pro boxing defeat on Saturday night, August 30th, 2014 in Germany. Huck’s win was historic because he tied Johnny Nelson’s 13 title defenses at the cruiserweight division.
Johnny Nelson was at the boxing event to watch both men face off and watched, possibly with envy, as Huck systematically took apart Larghetti.
Although Larghetti put forth a strong effort, Marco Huck was just too tough and too skilled and ended up nearly knocking out Mirko. Huck’s final combinations at the bell dropped Larghetti but the referee stated that since Larghetti dropped after the bell sounded, the fight went to the scorecards.
Judges all scored the bout for Marco Huck via scores of 116-112, 116-112, and 118-110.
