Former cruiserweight world titleholder Marco Hucks fight with Ovill McKenzie, scheduled for Saturday at the Festhalle Arena in Frankfurt, Germany, was canceled Tuesday when McKenzie withdrew, claiming illness. Simon Despres Ducks Jersey .Huck (39-3-1, 27 KOs), 31, of Germany, was seeking his second win in a row since Polands Krzysztof Glowacki scored a major upset 13 months ago in Newark, New Jersey, by rallying for an 11th-round knockout to take the title. Huck entered the fight tied with Englands Johnny Nelson for the most title defenses (13) in division history.Huck rebounded in February to stop rival Ola Afolabi in the 10th round of their fourth battle, and McKenzie was on deck as Huck tries to earn another major title opportunity.He is obviously terrified of me, Huck said of McKenzies withdrawal from the bout.McKenzie (25-12-1, 13 KOs), 36, a Jamaica native based in England, is unbeaten in five fights in a row since 2013 and coming off perhaps the finest performance of his career when he traveled to Argentina 11 months ago to challenge then-world titleholder Victor Emilio Ramirez and fought him to a draw many thought McKenzie won.The former British and Commonwealth champion was disappointed to have to pull out of the fight with Huck.Naturally, I am absolutely gutted that I have been forced to pull out, said McKenzie, who was going to challenge for Hucks minor belt. I had been training harder than ever and was in the shape of my life, but unfortunately these things happen in boxing. I was ready to give the performance of my career and cause a real upset against a great champion. I strongly believe that I would have beaten Huck.I am sorry to all of my fans who booked tickets, flights and hotels to watch me fight. Medical advice from health professionals cannot be ignored and I believe that we have made the correct decision to withdraw. I hope the fight can be rescheduled. Cam Fowler Jersey . Fred Couples, captain of the U.S. side, put it all into perspective. "We know whos in charge," he said. Hampus Lindholm Ducks Jersey . -- Vincent Lecavalier got everything but the desired result in his return to Tampa Bay. http://www.officialduckshockeyauthentic.com/dustin-tokarski-jersey/ . Anthony Calvillo, through 20 CFL seasons, was frequently invincible and largely stoic in the heat of competition. But underneath the professional exterior he was, and is, compellingly human. Indiana coach Kevin Wilson understands exactly what Wake Forest coach Dave Clawson is teaching his team these days.Less than a month into the season, the Demon Deacons are on the verge of surpassing their victory total from each of the last two seasons. They are unbeaten after three games, and the discussion around campus is inevitably turning to the possibility of postseason plans after a seven-year bowl drought.Clawson wants his team to learn how to handle success.We are proud of what they have done, but the reward of winning the game is that the next game has meaning to us, Clawson said. Its been a long time here since we have played games of meaning in October, and we want to play games that mean something in October and November.Its taken Clawson three grueling years to reach this point.Wilson already has been through it with his Hoosiers (2-0).A year ago, Wilson finally got Indiana to the postseason for the first time since 2007 and only the second time since 1993. And after losing quarterback Nate Sudfeld, running back Jordan Howard and offensive tackle Jason Spriggs to the NFL, some wondered how much of a drop there would be in 2016.Thus far, the Hoosiers offense has been chugging along just fine with new quarterback Richard Lagow and running back Devine Redding leading the way.But while the Demon Deacons (3-0, 1-0 ACC) already have a quality win over Duke, Saturdays game will be the Hoosiers best test yet. So to take momentum into October, which opens with three straight games against ranked teams, the Hoosiers must win now.We have practiced really, really good, and were going to need a good week because I think Wake comes in as a stout team and then we roll into nine straight Big Ten games, Wilson said. So getting ready to get real and get seerious, and I think our guys are looking forward to the challenge. Sam Steel Jersey. Here are some other things to watch Saturday:THE UNDEFEATEDSIt might not be the biggest game on the schedule, but it is one of only six Power Five games featuring unbeaten teams. Indiana is chasing its second straight 3-0 start, and its ninth straight win over a non-conference foe. Wake Forest, meanwhile, is one win away from its first 4-0 start since 2006.THE QUARTERBACKWake Forest shuffled quarterbacks for the first three games but wont have that option available this week. Kendall Hinton, who started last week against Delaware, is expected to miss to 2-4 weeks with a sprained ligament in his left knee. John Wolford will get the start, which poses a different challenge for Indiana. In last seasons game, the Hoosiers faced Hinton because Wolford was hurt.THE TAKEAWAYSIndianas defense, mostly criticized over the years, has forced three or more turnovers in four consecutive games for the first time since 1988-89. This season, the Hoosiers are No. 5 nationally in defensive touchdowns (two), No. 16 in interceptions (four) and No. 26 in takeaways (6). And the Hoosiers are No. 2 in the nation in turnover margin (plus-five).THE CENTURY MARKWith nine at Wake, 32 at Bowling Green and 29 each at Fordham and Richmond, Clawson is now one victory away from career win No. 100. Its taken him 12 seasons as a head coach to reach it.WELCOME BLOCK?Indiana All-American guard Dan Feeney left the Ball State game with a concussion and still wasnt cleared to practice after last weekends bye. If he can get back on the field Saturday, it will give the Hoosiers a big boost.
