Photos: Hernandez vs. Cunningham Open Workout Shots

Four top cruiserweights showcased their talents today in Frankfurt prior to Team Sauerland´s big show at the Fraport Arena on Saturday night. In four days, IBF Cruiserweight Champion Yoan Pablo Hernandez (25-1, 13 KOs) and two-time world champion Steve Cunningham (24-3, 12 KOs) will meet again, while Enad Licina and Alexander Alekseev clash for the vacant European Cruiserweight Title.

“I deserve to be world champion and I will prove my worth on Saturday night,” Hernandez told the press after today´s session. “He is good, but I don´t consider him a world champion,” Cunningham said of his opponent. “I am here to take home the title and become world champion for a third time.”

 

Meanwhile, Licina (21-3, 11 KOs) has vowed to leave the ring victorious against Alekseev (22-2, 20 KOs). “I grew up in Frankfurt and I want to give my fans an entertaining fight,” he said. “Aleeksev is an accomplished fighter but I am tough and I will beat him.” Said Alekseev: “I need to win. I want to be the new European champion.”

In the third title fight of the night, European Light Heavyweight Champion Eduard Gutknecht (22-1, 9 KOs) makes his first mandatory defence against Vyacheslav Uzelkov (25-1, 16 KOs). “He is a very strong opponent but I will remain the champion,” Gutknecht said.
