Philadelphia-based cruiserweight Steve Cunningham considered the best at his weight in the world is looking for the big fight that has long eluded him.

In Antonio Tarvers impressive debut on Wednesday in stopping Danny Green Down Under in nine rounds, he may have found one.

I dont know whats on his plate but if he decides to stay at cruiserweight it would be an awesome fight, Cunningham told BoxingScene.com. It would be a great fight for me, it would be a great fight for American television, it would be a good fight for everybody.

Weve been getting a lot of buzz on Twitter and Facebook about this matchup and Im excited, Im really excited actually. Im hungry, Im starving. Im ready to make it do what it do.

Cunningham (24-2, 12 KOs), promoted by European-based promoter Sauerland Event has been fighting mostly in Europe, but American fans got a glimpse of the talented boxer-puncher when he waged war with Tomasz Adamek in December 08, seen on Versus. Cunningham dropped a split decision to Adamek, a fight that could have gone either way.

I dont think the world has seen the best Steve Cunningham yet, said the 35-year-old Cunningham. The Adamek fight gave them a picture of my heart and little bit of skill. But I still believe that even with that heart Ive gotten better, I have a new trainer in Nazim Richardson, weve been together for almost three years, and I feel Im still learning and getting better. I think it would be a great fight, Im willing to give my all.

If hes willing to do it ASAP, Im ready. Ive been in camp, Ive been in training , Im never out of the gym. I have the mandatory thats coming up, so I would like to get a fight in before my mandatory, Ive been trying to fight since June. If hes willing to do the fight, then we can get in there ASAP. Hey, lets go.

[QUOTE=ThePhantom5]And Adamek. After Vitali takes care of him.[/QUOTE] No doubt Cruiserweight would be stacked with Haye, Adamek, Chambers, Cunningham, Tarver, Huck, Lebedev, maybe Guillermo Jones or Kayode and personally I think Boytsov could make CW.

[QUOTE=-Kev-]Marco Huck's lone loss is to Steve Cunningham. He also went 1-1 with Krystof, but IMO Cunningham won both. I also gave Cunningham the Adamek fight. Cunningham could easily be undefeated right now.[/QUOTE] Huck lost to Lebedev and received a gift, ppl need to stop respecting him as...
