Steve “USS” Cunningham (22-2, 11 KOs) has moved his training camp to Berlin´s famed Max-Schmeling-Gym where the former champion continues his preparation for the showdown with Troy Ross (23-1, 16 KOs). The duo will clash for the vacant IBF Cruiserweight Title in Neubrandenburg, Germany on June 5 when Cunningham makes his first fight under the promotional banner of Team Sauerland. “It is great to be back in Germany,” Cunningham said. “I only have the best memories of the country and the fans. We have been received very well here in Berlin. The set-up in the Max-Schmeling-Gym is great. We got all we need to prepare for the big fight next week.”

Cunningham is full of respect for Ross. “He is a strong guy who puts a lot of pressure on his opponents. He is a two-time Olympian, was a Commonwealth Champion and also won the Contender Series. But he will not defeat me. I take this fight very seriously. That is why I have come to Germany very early to adjust to the time difference. I am focused on winning my old IBF Title. A victory will open a lot of doors for me. But I am taking one step at a time. Right now, only Ross is on my mind.”

In the main fight on June 5, Germany´s Sebastian Sylvester defends his IBF Middleweight Title against mandatory challenger Roman Karmazin.
