Sauerland Event has inked former IBF cruiserweight champion Steve Cunningham to a promotional contract. “With the WBO titleholder Marco Huck, Yoan Pablo Hernandez and Alexander Frenkel we’re already well established in the cruiserweight division. With the signing of Steve Cunningham, now there are even better prospects,” said promoter Kalle Sauerland. Cunningham is rated #1 by the IBF and in line to fight for the vacant belt. “Of course we hope that he wins the IBF belt,” added Sauerland. “He’s an outstanding boxer.” Cunningham is well known in Germany for his win over current WBO champion Marco Huck.
