Steve Cunningham Sees Big Things With Sauerland Move

By Ryan Burton
 
Former IBF cruiserweight champion Steve Cunninngham (22-2) tells BoxingScene.com that he officially signed with Germany based promotional company, Sauerland Event.  Cunningham had been promoted by Don King and had this to say:

"I am very excited about the next chapter in my boxing career.  I feel signing with Sauerland Event is a bold move but a smart move especially because of my weight class.  Sauerland Event is a major player worldwide and I can see how well they support their fighters," Cunningham said. 

Sauerland also promotes WBO cruiserweight champion Marco Huck who on Saturday scored a 9th round TKO of Brian Minto.  Yoan Hernandez and Alexander Freckel are two more highly rated cruiserweights to round out Sauerland's deep stable in the division.
 
Fighting in Europe isn't a problem for Cunningham either.  The Philadelphia native said - "I am happy to be a part of Team Sauerland and I am looking forward to spending more time in Germany.  It is a beautiful country and with great boxing fans." 

A rematch with Marco Huck could very well happen in the near future.

Steve Cunningham is not as good as he thinks he is.

Wasn't Cunningham expected to sign with Main Events? This might actually be a better bet, though. There just aren't that many top American cruiserweights; the best cruisers are in Europe. Cunningham will have to fight in Europe a fair amount,…

Lots of interesting matchups that can be made at cruiserweight, the dividsion is loaded with talent: Ross-Cunningham Huck-Cunningham II Alexeev-Cunningham Frenkel-Cunningham Lebedev-Cunningham Maccarinelli-Huck Alexeev-Huck G. Jones-Huck Lebedev-Huck Ross-Huck etc.

Huck-Cunningham 2 is the best fight that can be made in the division. Hopefully it happens soon, now that Cunningham has signed.
