Huck beats Arslan to retain WBO title

HALLE, Germany (AP) - German cruiserweight Marco Huck successfully retained the WBO title for the 10th time with a unanimous decision win over compatriot Firat Arslan on Saturday.

The decision was greeted by a chorus of boos. The 42-year-old Arslan, a southpaw, dictated the action throughout, and rocked the defending champion with a left uppercut to leave him with a bloody nose in the second round.

The 27-year-old Huck responded in the seventh and eighth rounds, but the elusive Arslan appeared unbothered, even raising his arms in triumph after the ninth.

Huck finished strongly, and the judges scored it 115-113, 115-113 and 117-111.

Huck improved to 35-2-1 with 25 knockouts, while Arslan dropped to 32-6-2 with 21 KOs.
