Philadelphia's Steve Cunningham travelled to the Fraport Arena in Frankfurt Germany in an attempt to recapture the IBF world cruiserweight title that he had lost by a 6th round technical decision to German-based Cuban Yoan Pablo Hernandez four months earlier.

Southpaw Hernandez proved to be a worthy champion, winning a deserved unanimous decision against the always tough Cunningham who would have become a three-time IBF cruiserweight champion had he come away with the win.

Hernandez dropped the Philadelphian twice in the fourth round and although the challenger came back to make it a competitive contest, he never did enough to regain his title.

Scores: Massimiliano Bianco 115-111 | Alejandro Lopez Cid 116-110 | Pasquale Procopio 116-110.
