“I am a world champion and the key word is world. I have fought in South Africa and Poland so fighting on enemy soil is something that doesn’t faze me.” Said Cunningham,. “My experience in the Navy has prepared me to fight abroad and this is something that is part of the business.”
“I know Marco is a good young challenger but I been to places inside the ring that he hasn’t been. I was told that hardest the work begins with trying to keep my title as everyone is now gunning for me and I have been working harder then I ever have. I am still getting better, so when this fight happens, the world will see the best Steve Cunningham.”
“I would like to congratulate Sauerland for winning the bid and I look forward to displaying my world champion talents in Germany.”
