Marco started Taekwando and kickboxing at the age of ten. As an amateur kickboxer he had some success winning a gold medal at first the W.A.K.O European championships in 2002 and then at the same organizations world championships in 2003 aged just 18. Despite success in Full-Contact kickboxing he decided to switch completely to boxing, having also participated in the sport since he was 15.
In 2004 he proved himself in sparring for promoter Sauerland and turned pro under Ulli Wegner. There he showed a crowdpleasing aggressive style, good stamina, power, a decent chin and a strong will to win but a volatile temper and an extremely dirty fighting style making him a controversial character.
He was rated #7 by the Ring Magazine when he fought Steve Cunningham in 2007, however Huck was knocked by Cunningham in his first title defense.
After the loss to Cunningham he has since won six straight fights by knockout and on March 13,2010 Huck won the WBO Cruiserweight title from Victor Emilio Ramírez.
Huck lost a narrow, controversial majority decision to Alexander Povetkin on Feb 25, 2012 in his quest for the WBA 'Regular' Heavyweight Title.
