After a meeting with Ken Hershman, Marco Huck and his team are confident that the standout cruiserweight titleholder will soon be seen on HBO in the United States, with Hershman saying that Huck’s action style could make him a star in the States.

Huck (37-2-1, 26 KO) has been a top cruiserweight for the past five years, and also had a one-off heavyweight bout against Alexander Povetkin in 2012. Though smaller than Povetkin, Huck gave the then-unbeaten titleholder a stern test, and his majority decision loss was fairly controversial.

The 29-year-old Huck, a Serbian-born fighter based in Germany, has gone 3-0-1 since that loss to Povetkin, drawing against Ola Afolabi, which he made up for with a win, and beating Firat Arslan twice, though the first time had its own minor controversy.
