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.
