Both fighters were in confident mood ahead of the fight this weekend.
“From my childhood, it was a dream for me to fight for the green belt of the WBC,” Marco Huck said. “Now this dream comes true. It is a maximum motivation for me.”4
Hard hitting opponent Mairis Briedis (21 wins, 18 K.o.’s) says that the status of the fight doesn’t make a big difference for him.
“Of course it is a honour to fight for the WBC belt, but it will be the same Marco Huck in the ring, like before,” said Brieids, the WBC mandatory challenger.
“I prepared very well and I take this really seriously, of course. I fight with a warrior and that means everything can happen. I have no plan for a knockout but I want to fight with a lot of tactical discipline.”
Marco Huck is the IBO champion of the world and he wants more.
“My opponent is strong. I know this. But I am stronger. If I didn´t believe in this I would be in the wrong place. And of course – I always want to win by knockout!”
