Premier Boxing Champions has announced that a battle of former champions has been finalized for August 14th, on Spike TV, with Antonio Tarver (31-6, 22KOs) facing Steve Cunningham (28-7, 13KOs) in a heavyweight contest.
Tarver was last seen in action in December, when he stopped Johnathan Banks in the seventh round of a very one-sided fight that likely ended Banks' career as a fighter. Banks is also the head trainer of heavyweight king Wladimir Klitschko.
Cunningham was in action back in March on the Sergey Kovalev-Jean Pascal undercard, where he lost a close decision to unbeaten contender Czar Glazkov. After that fight, he parted ways with his promoter of the last few years, Main Events, and signed up with manager/adviser Al Haymon (who also works with Tarver among 200 other fighters).
