Marco Huck: “The green WBC belt, the belt Ali and Tyson wore, this is what I’ve always dreamed about. I was WBO champ for a long time and I always wanted my old promoter to set up a title fight with the WBC, but it never happened. Now it is finally happening…this fight will be a slugfest and we certainly will not play chess. It will be a real fight, but a clean fight…I always go for the KO!”

Mairis Briedis: “I had a professional training camp, but I’m standing in the ring on Saturday with a warrior. Marco is a champion. There can be no other plan than an early win. My plan is to take a tactical, disciplined approach and to box him. Round after round I will keep him under pressure and then we’ll see what happens.”
