Hernandez-Cunningham Rematch To Air On BoxNation

NOn February 4th, BoxNation (Sky Ch. 456/Virgin Ch. 546), the UK’s only dedicated boxing channel, continues its commitment to bring subscribers the very best in Championship boxing from all around the world, by showcasing Yoan Pablo Hernandez’s first defence of his newly won IBF Cruiserweight championship against Steve Cunningham, live and exclusive from the Fraport Arena in Germany.
 
Former Cuban amateur star Hernandez (25-1) captured his title by defeating former champion Cunningham (24-3) back in September with a 6th round technical decision. The decision came in controversial fashion, with Hernandez being given the nod after he could not continue because of a cut he received from a Cunningham head-butt. Many observers felt that the cut was not serious enough to warrant a stoppage,  and that it came just as the American was begging to gain the ascendancy after suffering a first round knockdown.
 
Needless to say the controversial nature of the result has left a huge amount of unfinished business that needs to be resolved when the two meet again on February 4th.  
 
BoxNation will also be showing the action packed undercard live from the Fraport Arena. Chief support sees Sebian, Enad Licina (21-3) meet Russian Alexander Alexeev (22-2) for the vacant European Cruiserweight Title, whilst up and coming German Light Heavyweight, Eduard Gutnecht (22-1) defends his European Title against Vyacheslav Uzelkov (25-1).
 
The action just keeps coming on BoxNation in 2012. This will be the SIXTH world title fight added to in the first quarter schedule for the UK’s new home of televised boxing.  The  2012 world championship action begins this Saturday, 14th January, when  Russian born German, Robert Stieglitz defends his WBO World Super-Middleweight title against unbeaten German Henry Weber in Germany. Then on the 20th January, Derry Mathews takes on Emiliano Marsili for the vacant IBO Lightweight Championship live from Liverpool. Then on the 18th February, it's the big one, as heavyweight king, Vitali Klitchsko takes on Londoner Dereck Chisora for the WBC World Heavyweight Title live from Munich.
 
The following weekend BoxNation goes live from Cardiff for the homecoming of their WBO World Light Heavyweight Champion Nathan Cleverly, who takes on American Tommy Karpency. Then for 10th March BoxNation is up to Glasgow, as Ricky Burns defends his Interim WBO World Lightweight title.
 
With more action to be added, it’s sure to be a huge couple of months for the UK’s only dedicated boxing channel.
