IBF cruiserweight world champion Yoan Pablo Hernandez (26-1, 13 KOs) will take on mandatory challenger Troy Ross (25-2, 16 KOs) on September 15 at the Stechert Arena in Bamberg, Germany. In Troy Ross, currently number three in the IBF rankings, Hernandez faces a tricky opponent. “He is very quick, agile and throws hard punches,” said Hernandez. “I saw his title bout against Steve Cunningham back in June 2010. He was really strong but had to stop the fight due to a heavy cut. He was really unfortunate and will try everything to beat me and become the new world champion.” Tickets for the big fight night at the Stechert Arena will be available at the end of the week.
