Berlin, Germany (May 11, 2024) - Former WBO cruiserweight champion Marco Huck is gearing up for a credible return to the ring, this time in the heavyweight division. After nearly four years away from boxing, the 39-year-old veteran will face off against Greece's Evgenios Lazaridis on June 29th, marking his much-anticipated comeback to his loyal German following.

Marco Huck is getting ready for another assault on the heavyweight division.

Huck's storied career has seen him battle some of the biggest names in the sport, including Oleksandr Usyk, demonstrating his tenacity and warrior spirit inside the ring. Despite his impressive resume, questions loom over Huck's ability to compete at the highest level, particularly at his age and after enduring numerous ring wars.

One of Huck's most memorable forays into the heavyweight division came in 2012 when he clashed with Alexander Povetkin for the WBA regular title, engaging in a thrilling 12-round contest that saw Povetkin win via majority decision. Now, Huck is determined to make another run at top heavyweight glory and bring a title back to Germany.

However, Huck's journey back to the top will not be without its challenges. Standing in his path is the towering figure of Evgenios Lazaridis, a formidable opponent with a height advantage of 6'6" and a record of 19-5 (13). Lazaridis, hailing from Greece but residing in Germany, presents a stern test for Huck with his size and experience in the ring.

Despite Lazaridis' imposing stature, Huck remains undeterred in his quest for heavyweight glory. With his trademark grit and determination, Huck is prepared to overcome the odds and prove that age is just a number in the world of boxing. While his last major bout against Usyk occurred seven years ago, Huck remains confident in his abilities to make a triumphant return to the spotlight.

As Huck and Lazaridis prepare to square off in June, his fans will curiously follow the outcome of this intriguing match. While Huck may be giving away height and reach, his fighting spirit and resilience make him a formidable opponent for many in the division. With the support of his loyal fan base behind him, Huck is poised to provide excitement as he looks to enter the top heavyweight rankings.
