The judges ruled unanimously in Marco Huck's (right) favor: 116-112, 116-112, 118-110.
Halle, Germany (SportsNetwork.com) - In the end, Marco Huck will retain his WBO cruiserweight crown, although there was some controversy as to how his bout against Mirko Larghetti ended.

Huck (38-2-1) battered Larghetti with a barrage of punches at the conclusion of the 12th and final round. Although referee Jack Reiss ruled that a knockout punch floored Larghetti before the round was over, the challenger didn't hit the canvas until after the bell sounded to end the fight.

The decision was placed in the hands of the judges, who ruled unanimously in Huck's favor: 116-112, 116-112, 118-110.

Larghetti (21-1) suffered his first-ever defeat to the man who successfully defended the cruiserweight crown for the 13th time, tying Englishman Johnny Nelson's record.
