Ross-Cunningham update

By Dave Spencer / Fightnews Canada

With the news of cruiserweight Steve Cunningham’s recent signing with Sauerland Event, negotiations are moving quickly in a showdown with Contender winner Troy Ross for the vacant IBF cruiserweight title. A proposed purse-bid set for this Thursday will likely be averted as a date of June 5th in Germany has been put forth and will likely be accepted by Group Yvon Michel, promoter for Ross. “We’re awaiting the proposal in writing, but if all is in order, I see it being accepted,” Michel told Fightnews. “Talks went really well and they were very professional.” The IBF had ordered the Cunningham-Ross fight when things fell through on Cunningham meeting Matt Godfrey earlier this year.
