Photos: Cunningham, Sylvester, Hernandez Workouts

Sebastian Sylvester, Steve Cunningham and Yoan Pablo Hernandez today gave the fans in Neubrandenburg, Germany a first-hand look at their skills during the public work-out ahead of Team Sauerland´s big show on Saturday night.

Hometown hero Sylvester (34-4-1, 16 KOs) will make his first fight since losing the IBF Middleweight Title against Daniel Geale on May 7. Just like his Polish opponent Grzegorz Proksa (25-0, 18 KOs), he is eager to win the vacant European Middleweight Title.

“I need that title to get back in line for a world title shot,” Sylvester said. “I know Proksa is a tough opponent. He has done a lot of talking in the last weeks. So I am happy for him to be the favorite going into the battle. But we will see what happens inside the ring. I am sure the fans´ support will be gigantic again, and I am very confident of success.”

In the co-featured main event, IBF Cruiserweight Champion Steve Cunningham (24-2, 12 KOs) will take on Yoan Pablo Hernandez (24-1, 13 KOs) in his second title defence.

“I am looking forward to Saturday,” Hernandez said after working the pads with coach Ulli Wegner today. “It will be a tough and a very interesting fight. I really fancy my chances.”

Cunningham once again looked in fantastic shape during today´s work-out. “Hernandez is a very good opponent, but I have defeated all reigning cruiserweight champions,” he said.

“Hernandez is a top challenger but I am the champ and I will prove it again.”

In the third title fight of the night, Karo Murat (24-1, 14 KOs) will defend his IBF Intercontinental Light Heavyweight Title against Gabriel Campillo (21-3, 8 KOs).

I hope Steve is in good shape. He should win by KO.
