  • If Huck is only 39, he must’ve turned pro when he was like 13. That guy’s been around FOREVER.

    • He first fought as a pro 20 years ago. That would have made him 19.

  • I like Huck’s fighting style; it’s very brave and exciting. The best memory I have of him is his valiant effort against a prime Alexander Povedkin in a bid for the WBA heavyweight title. What a fight! I wish the best for him in his return.

    • Yes, that was when the Vityaz man Povetkin was at his peak and had won all 23 fights, most by KO, against top guys too.

  • Huck has a shot against a lot of top heavyweights today. At 39 he’s surely slowed a step, but he will look like lightning against the likes of Zhang or Dubois. I don’t see him ever getting a title, but if Charles Martin can…

  • Damn, money must be tight that he’s coming back to take more punishment!

    • Tigre, not necessarily. He may just love to fight, the atmosphere, the challenge. It’s very addictive and when the roar of the crowd goes away sometimes that’s the worst feeling.

  • Is he coming back a a Cruiser or Heavy? I think he last campaigned at Heavy

    • Heavy. The Greek fellow he’s scheduled to fight is huge.

  • Looking forward to seeing the Bosnian back in action!
