CRUISERWEIGHT world champion Marco Huck has confirmed he will return to heavyweight to potentially fight WBC world champion Deontay Wilder.
The German-based Serbian unsuccessfully challenged Alexander Povetin for his WBA world heavyweight title in 2012.
Speaking ahead of his own WBO title defence against Krzysztof Glowacki at the Prudential Center in Newark on Friday night [August 14], he confirmed his eventual return to the banner division.
“When I eventually go back up to heavyweight I want to fight the top guys right away. Maybe I’ll go fight Deontay Wilder, that is definitely an interesting option,” he said.
Should he win on Friday, he will set the record for the most successful world cruiserweight title defences in history at 14.
Although he revealed his lofty ambitions, Huck also insisted he is fully prepared for unbeaten Pole Glowacki.
“All our focus is on Friday night and our victory,” he said.
“I don’t really concern myself with my opponents. My only worry is if he is a southpaw or orthodox. A lot of people say they’re in they’re in the best shape of their lives, but they all come crashing down.
“The only thing I need to know is that I am going to beat him come Friday night. I want my opponents to adjust to me because I am the world champion.
“I take all of my opponents seriously. It is disrespectful not to and he’s very well-ranked.”
