BERLIN (AP) - German cruiserweight Marco Huck has pulled out of the defense of his WBO title against Firat Arslan because of a hairline fracture in his left elbow.

Huck was due to fight Arslan in Stuttgart on Saturday in a rematch following his unanimous decision win over the 42-year-old German in November 2012.

Huck says "I'm really disappointed. I was in such good shape and now the whole preparation was for nothing.''

Huck needs six to eight weeks rest. There was no immediate decision on a rescheduled date.

The 28-year-old Huck is 36-2-1 with 25 knockouts, while Arslan is 33-6-2 with 21.
