Cunningham Responds To Haye
During an international conference call, WBC/Ring Magazine Cruiserweight champion David Haye was asked if he was interested in a fight with IBF Cruiserweight champion, Steve “USS” Cunningham if he wins on Saturday against WBO champ Enzo Maccarinelli. Haye responded by saying “Nobody knows who he is. Who has he beaten? He has a vacant title. There's no history behind him. The reason he got the title is because O'Neil Bell gave the title up, and then Cunningham took the belt.” Cunningham wants to put Haye on alert that he should delay his heavyweight aspirations and maybe get his facts right.

“Who have I fought? Who has he fought? He knocked out Mormeck, who shouldn’t have had the title in the first place. Bell won the second fight despite Mormeck being saved by short rounds. Other then that, the only name he ever fought was Carl Thompson and by the way David, I just want to remind you that you got knocked out in that fight..”
“Lets compare resume’s David. How many guys have I beaten that were top-10 guys and how many have you beaten. I count one in Mormeck, a faded Mormeck at that. The same faded guy that had you on Ice Skates during that fight”
“I have fought Sebastian Rotthmann (In South Africa), Guillermo Jones, Kelvin Davis, Wlodarzcyk (two times in Poland) and Huck (in Germany)”
“As for the vacant belt comment, I actually beat a reigning champion in Wlodarczyk. Everyone who saw the first fight knows what happened. You know I won that fight. O’Neill Bell ran from me two times. He knows why he did it. He remembers our time together in Atlanta “
“Who am I? I am sure I am better known in Europe then you are.”
“You are trying to run from me just like the other unified champ ran.”
“Just some advice for you David, going up to heavyweight will be putting your career on the line, because your already exposed glass jaw will be broken. And that’s IF you get by Enzo on Saturday.”
