Former WBO cruiserweight world champion Marco Huck (41-5-1, 28 KOs) had no problems stopping 41-year-old Yakup Saglam (40-5, 37 KOs) on Saturday at the Ballhaus Forum in Munich, Germany. Now campaigning as a heavyweight, Huck dropped Saglam in round four and Saglam’s corner threw in the towel. Huck entered the bout with consecutive losses to cruiserweight champions Oleksandr Usyk and Mairis Briedis.
In another notable heavyweight bout, unbeaten Petar Milas (12-0, 9 KOs) defeated former heavyweight title challenger Francesco Pianeta (35-4-1, 21 KOs) by ten round unanimous decision.
