Professional Boxer Marco Huck was born on November 11th 1984 in Ugoa, Serbia. After moving to Germany, he began his career in sports with kickboxing and wrote sports history at the age of 18. In 2003, he became the youngest German Kickboxing World Champion of all time. Subsequently, he pursued a career in boxing. It took him 15 successful fights as an amateur before he was offered a professional contract.
In November 2004, Marco Huck faced his first fight as a professional and currently has a record of 43 fights, 39 wins (27 KO), 3 losses and one draw. He became European Champion in 2008 and in the following year he took the WBO World Champion title from Victor Emilio Rodriguez. With 13 consecutive title defenses, he evened the record formerly held by the Briton Johnny Nelson and was named WBO Superchampion. In 2015, Huck lost his 14th title defense against the Polish Krzystof Glowacki.
Together with his brother Kenan, he founded Huck Sports Promotion in 2014 to promote himself.
Since 2015 the Klitschko Management Group (KMG) cooperates with Huck Sports Promotion (HSP). Besides general consulting issues, KMG is responsible for marketing the German TV rights of all Huck fights. With longtime media partner RTL, Klitschko Management Group has
found a TV station that set the standards in international boxing broadcasts. The RTL Group and KMG started their cooperation in 2006. Since then, all World Championship bouts of Vitali and Wladimir Klitschko have been shown by RTL. Now Marco Huck is added to the portfolio. The first fight under this arrangement took place in Halle/Westfalen, Germany, when Huck defeated IBO Cruiserweight World Champion Ola Afolabi and took his title on February 27th 2016.
The cooperation between KMG, RTL and Huck Sports Promotion was put forward by Wladimir Klitschko himself in 2015 after Huck lost his WBO title in New Jersey. Wladimir Klitschko faced a similar defeat in his career with his loss against Lamon Brewster in 2004, after which he made the right decisions. He promoted himself, made adjustments to his team and started an 11-year-long triumphal march which led to 7 events in Soccer stadiums, fights in sold-out arenas from Hamburg to New York City and the unification of the IBF, IBO, WBA and WBO World Championship titles.
Together with Marco Huck and Huck Sports Promotion, Wladimir Klitschko and the KMG started to write another success story.
