Steve Cunningham vs Troy Ross
By Media Report on Doghouse Boxing (May 7, 2010)    
Steve “USS” Cunningham will have his first fight under the promotional banner of Team Sauerland against Troy Ross, 23-1-(16), for the vacant IBF Cruiserweight Title in Neubrandenburg, Germany on June 5.

In the co-featured main event, IBF Middleweight Champion Sebastian Sylvester faces mandatory challenger Roman Karmazin.

“We are thrilled to add this fight to our June 5 card,” said Team Sauerland General Manager Chris Meyer. “I have no doubts that Steve Cunningham will make a successful debut and reclaim his IBF title. But Ross is a strong opponent. I want to thank his management – namely Yvon Michel and Jeff Wald – to make this fight happen in a very short period of time. It will be an exciting evening.”

Earlier this week, Team Sauerland announced the signing of Cunningham, 22-2-(11). “He is a fantastic fighter,” Meyer added.

“I expect him to beat Ross. It would give him a lot of interesting options because the cruiserweight division is loaded with talent in Europe. I am sure Marco Huck would also like to take revenge for his dramatic loss two-and-a-half years ago. But there are also a couple of other options for Steve. First he needs to put aside Ross, which will be a tough task.”
