Two-time world champion Steve “USS” Cunningham (24-3, 12 KOs) has arrived in Frankfurt, Germany. On February 4, the American veteran will face IBF Cruiserweight Champion Yoan Pablo Hernandez (25-1, 13 KOs) in a hotly-anticipated rematch at the Fraport Arena.
Cunningham and his team – Naazim Richardson, Mark Osborn, Khalib Whitmore and Jonathan Adderly – landed on Wednesday.
On Friday, they paid a special visit to AFN Wiesbaden (American Forces Network). “It’s great to catch up with AFN and connect with my military brothers and sisters,” Cunningham said. “I am ready for a battle with Hernandez on February 4. I am going to tear the title away from him and bring it back to America.”
