           === Huck TKOs Arslan to retain WBO cruiserweight title ===
 
 Stuttart,  Germany  (SportsNetwork.com) - Marco  Huck scored a sixth-round TKO
 over  challenger Firat  Arslan on  Saturday  to retain  his WBO  cruiserweight
 title.
 
 Huck (37-2-1) claimed a unanimous-decision win over Arslan back in November of
 2012,  but  didn't require all  12 rounds in this  one, as the defending champ
 sent  the 43-year-old  Arslan (33-7-2) to the canvass twice in the sixth round
 before  the referee waved  things off later in the round with Arslan pinned up
 against the ropes.
 
 It was Huck's 12th successful title defense.
 
 The rematch was originally scheduled to take place back in September, but Huck
 sustained  an  elbow injury  that  caused  the  fight  to be  postponed  until
 Saturday.
