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.

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.
