German cruiserweight Marco Huck successfully retained the WBO title for the eighth time, stopping Argentine challenger Rogelio Rossi in the sixth round Saturday. Rossi needed medical attention and took a long time to get up after Huck left the 30-year-old southpaw sprawled on the canvas with a clean right punch. The 26-year-old Huck also knocked Rossi down in the third round, and was deducted two points for flooring him again well after the bell at the end of the fourth round. ''I think I hit him after the bell,'' Huck said, prompting a mixed response from the home crowd. With Rossi still clearly feeling the effect, Huck went for the knockout in the fifth, when he twice brought the challenger down again, before finishing him off in the sixth. ''I had 12 rounds and probably took too much time,'' Huck said. ''Maybe I could have ended the fight earlier.'' Huck improved to 34-1 (25 KOs), while Rossi, who was deducted a point for low punches in the third, dropped to 17-3-1 (11 KOs)...
