Marco Huck originally set out to regain his WBO cruiserweight title that he lost in stunning fashion to Glowacki last year. However, Glowacki recently lost to Oleksandr Usyk, which sets up an intriguing potential bout if Huck beats McKenzie.
Many had written Ovill McKenzie off after a TKO loss to Enzo Macarinelli that looked to be the end of his long career. However, he has made a resurgence and complied a 4-0-1 record against sturdy competition. The one draw being a 'controversial' decision that allowed Victor Emilio Ramirez to retain his title on home soil in Argentina.
Now, McKenzie will once again have to fight uphill in Huck's backyard, where he has been known to receive favorable scores from the judges. This fight is sure to garner a lot of attention in Europe as these Germany vs England matchups usually do. And with two heavy hitters, this fight has potential for a grandstand finish.
