Photos: Cunningham-Hernandez Final Press Conference

IBF Cruiserweight Champion Steve Cunningham (24-2, 12 KOs) is “ready to go to war on Saturday night” when he clashes with Yoan Pablo Hernandez (24-1, 13 KOs) in Neubrandenburg, Germany. The 35-year-old American voiced his confidence today during the final press conference in a redesigned church.

“I have followed his career for a long time. Hernandez is one of the top cruiserweights and a very strong opponent. But I have defeated all reigning cruiserweights champions and I will clinch another victory on Saturday night. The weapons are oiled and I am ready to go to war.”

Hernandez, who became the WBA Interim Cruiserweight Champion in February when he stopped Steve Herelius, is looking forward to Saturday night. “Cunningham is good, I know what he did to my training partner and stablemate Marco Huck. Saturday will be time for revenge. I have a lot of respect for him but I am ready to become world champion.”

Also on Saturday night, former IBF Middleweight Champion Sebastian Sylvester (34-4-1, 16 KOs) makes his comeback after losing his title to Daniel Geale. He will face Grzegorz Proksa (25-0, 18 KOs) for the vacant European Middleweight Title. “I am not impressed by Sylvester,” Proksa said. “He has shown no improvement in his last fights. I don´t think he will have any surprises for me. I will remain unbeaten and I will win the title on Saturday.” Sylvester was unimpressed. “He talks like he is the big favourite and I don´t have a chance at all. That´s fine for me. He can say what he wants. All I will do is show up on Saturday night, win all 12 rounds and then I´m done with him.”

In the third title fight of the night, Karo Murat defends his IBF Intercontinental Light Heavyweight Title against Gabriel Campillo.

The fact that Martinez-Barker gets televised and this fight doesn't is mothafrickin' outrageous. #1 Cruiserweight in the world and lineal champ @ Junior-Middleweight are from the U.S. and can't even get their title matches aired. And Eurof[COLOR="Black"]a[/COLOR]gs have the nerve…

Proksa will get some publicity after beating Sylvester, but you can never be too sure in Germany.
