HERNANDEZ v CUNNINGHAM IBF WORLD CRUISERWEIGHT CHAMPIONSHIP SHOWDOWN ADDED TO BOXNATION SCHEDULE
On February 4th, BoxNation (Sky Ch. 456/Virgin Ch. 546), the UK’s only dedicated boxing channel, continues its commitment to bring subscribers the very best in Championship boxing from all around the world, by showcasing Yoan Pablo Hernandez’s first defence of his newly won IBF Cruiserweight championship against Steve Cunningham, live and exclusive from the Fraport Arena in Germany.
Former Cuban amateur star Hernandez (25-1) captured his title by defeating former champion Cunningham (24-3) back in September with a 6th round technical decision. The decision came in controversial fashion, with Hernandez being given the nod after he could not continue because of a cut he received from a Cunningham head-butt. Many observers felt that the cut was not serious enough to warrant a stoppage, and that it came just as the American was beginning to gain the ascendancy after suffering a first round knockdown.
Needless to say the controversial nature of the result has left a huge amount of unfinished business that needs to be resolved when the two meet again on February 4th.
BoxNation will also be showing the action packed undercard live from the Fraport Arena. Chief support sees Sebian, Enad Licina (21-3) meet Russian Alexander Alexeev (22-2) for the vacant European Cruiserweight Title, whilst up and coming German Light Heavyweight, Eduard Gutnecht (22-1) defends his European Title against Vyacheslav Uzelkov (25-1).
The action just keeps coming on BoxNation in 2012. This will be the SIXTH world title fight added to in the first quarter schedule for the UK’s new home of televised boxing. The 2012 world championship action begins this Saturday, 14th January, when Russian born German, Robert Stieglitz defends his WBO World Super-Middleweight title against unbeaten German Henry Weber in Germany. Then on the 20th January, Derry Mathews takes on Emiliano Marsili for the vacant IBO Lightweight Championship live from Liverpool. Then on the 18th February, it’s the big one, as heavyweight king, Vitali Klitchsko takes on Londoner Dereck Chisora for the WBC World Heavyweight Title live from Munich.
The following weekend BoxNation goes live from Cardiff for the homecoming of their WBO World Light Heavyweight Champion Nathan Cleverly, who takes on American Tommy Karpency. Then for 10th March BoxNation is up to Glasgow, as Ricky Burns defends his Interim WBO World Lightweight title.
With more action to be added, it’s sure to be a huge couple of months for the UK’s only dedicated boxing channel.

STEVE ‘USS’ CUNNINGHAM
By Rio – Philadelphia – Wednesday, 5th October 2011
CUNNINGHAM v HERNANDEZ - JUST WHAT THE DOCTOR ORDERED
On Saturday night in Neubrandenburg, Germany, Yoan Pablo Hernandez was awarded the IBF Cruiserweight Title by split technical decision over 2-time champion Steve Cunningham of Philadelphia after Hernandez's corner and doctor advised the referee to stop the bout in the corner after the 6th round.
Since the bout, in a release sent out by Sauerland Event, the Hernandez corner has attempted to take the focus away from the machinations that caused the stoppage and the score cards – with the judges voting for Hernandez being universally criticized by the media worldwide – which awarded Hernandez the belt, and have attempted to create controversy over the failure of the referee to stop the bout after Cunningham had been knocked down in Round 1, a move reminiscent of the “controversy” that some tried to create in the aftermath of Mike Tyson v Buster Douglas, Hernandez trainer Ulli Wegner is looking to divert attention away from the role played by the ring doctor Walter Wagner, who advised referee Mickey Vann that the fight should be stopped even though the cuts suffered by Hernandez were not bleeding. Cunningham responded to the tactics saying, “As soon as I read what Wegner was saying, I knew what it was – they want to take the focus off the way the fight was stopped. I am a true champion and despite the knock down, I was coming back to win that fight and they were not going to let that happen.”
In an AP report, Dr. Wagner is quoted as stating that he recommended that the Cunningham v Hernandez bout be stopped even though “the cuts weren't dangerous but the blood could have run into his eyes and affected his vision. I think the head clashes that the referee felt were accidental weren't entirely accidental. You can have different opinions there. Hernandez was at a disadvantage from the cuts, so I gave the recommendation.”
Let's get this right – the doctor, who was observed at ringside cheering on Hernandez and was noted to have been keeping a scorecard together with a representative of Sauerland Event, advised the referee – who would be remiss not to take the advice of a physician – to stop the bout because, in his medical opinion (?), Dr. Wagner felt that Hernandez was at a “disadvantage”- even though the cuts 'weren't dangerous” – and the blood “could have” run into Hernandez's eyes and “could have” affected his vision – even though it was clear that neither cut was bleeding when Hernandez arose from his stool?
Dr. Wagner proceeded to further question the judgment of the experienced referee Mickey Vann on the boxing (not medical) call about whether the clashes of heads were accidental or not? “Everyone knows that the referee is the one to make those calls, I am not a dirty fighter, never have been. When an orthodox and a southpaw fight, head butts are likely to happen, and with that cuts are likely also, but if the cuts were not causing a problem, the fight should have continued. The only person with a disadvantage was me, I was fighting against way more that Yoan Pablo Hernandez on Saturday night.” said Cunningham.
Dr. Wagner is no stranger to controversy – he was the ring doctor who was in the corner of Ulli Wegner-trained Arthur Abraham when Abraham was permitted to fight on against Edison Miranda, in spite of having suffered a broken jaw and with Abraham's face being a mask of blood throughout the bout. This obviously was, in the humble and respected opinions of Herr Wagner and Herr Wegner, far less an injury than was suffered by Hernandez, as both argued that Abraham could continue but that Hernandez could not. “It's really crazy. Abraham was allowed to fight on like a warrior despite his serious injuries and my fight was stopped due to two cuts that weren't bleeding, I guess they liked their chances with Abraham over Miranda more than they did of Hernandez beating me” said Cunningham.
Cunningham then went on to recount how the night went,
“In the first round I was feeling him out. I thought it was going well and then I got caught by a good shot and went down. I was down but not out. The knock down only me made me more determined. After the action started in the second I was back and went to work. I could feel myself getting stronger, sharper every round and I could feel him fading. I could taste a late round stoppage coming. But as you know, we didn't get the chance to see who the best man was as they stopped it after the sixth round.”
Most neutral observers had Hernandez winning the first two rounds, with Cunningham taking control and winning Rounds 3 through 6. With Cunningham coming on and Hernandez fading, at the conclusion of Round 6, the referee asked the doctor to have a look at the cuts.
Doctor Wagner informed referee Vann that the fight should be stopped. The referee, who is in fact the final arbiter, was in a position in which he cannot, in good conscience, overrule what he takes to be advice provided by a neutral ring doctor based on what is believed to be medical opinion. Referee Vann asked “is that what you're telling me” and then stopped the fight on the advice of ring physician Wagner. Hernandez walked to the center of the ring, without a drop of blood coming from either cut, and shrugged to Cunningham like he didn't know why the fight was being stopped.
Hernandez wasn’t the only person confused by the decision, “I am a world champion, this is how I provide for my family and I have and always will fight to the end. Perhaps Wegner was out for some revenge after what I did to Huck, they wanted my belt and were willing to do whatever to take it” said Cunningham, before continuing “I have asked my lawyer to look what my options are, at the end of the day, no one should feel good about the way this fight ended. Hernandez and I share the same promoter and they should want to see this rectified. I have always been so proud to be the IBF Champion, they are an organization that stands behind their rules and does not get pulled into the shady politics and I respect them so much for that. I know they want their champions to earn the title, a rematch is truly in order.”

Hernandez dropped Cunningham with a short left hand in round one and Cunningham barely beat the count and barely survived the round. Cunningham seemed recovered by round two. Hernandez surprisingly did not come down on Cunningham in round two, giving the champion further time to clear his head. (Hernandez was cut on the left side of his head in round three and over his right eye in round six by head clashes) and by round four Cunningham had taken control of the action. Then referee Mickey Vann surprisingly waved it off after the sixth round due to the cuts, which didn’t seem particularly bad. After the fight, Cunningham said he felt like he was “set up” and that he’d “been had,” questioning why the fight wasn’t stopped earlier, before it would have gone to the scorecards.

Super flyweight – Omar Andres Narvaez def Victor Zaleta by UD 12 / 12 – WBO super flyweight title.
Super flyweight – Odilon Zaleta def BJ Dolorosa by SD 6 / 6
WBO super flyweight champion Omar Narvaez (33-0-2, 19 KOs) of Argentina retained his title over Victor Zaleta (17-2, 9 KOs) of Mexico by way of unanimous decision. Zaleta fought Narvaez even for the first two rounds but after that it was all Narvaez. Narvaez stood for the most part in front of the 26 year old Zaleta making him miss reguarly by simply bending at the waist slightly backwards or side to side. Offensively Narvaez was scoring at will with sweeping left and rights from his natural southpaw stance which were little by little taking a toll on Zaleta. The referee deducted a point from Zaleta in round six for a low blow. Zaleta had been warned multiple times. Things got worse for Zaleta as Narvaez went on a serious offensive attack from rounds 9-12 on a now worn out and frustrated Zaleta. Narvaez did all he could to get Zaleta out of there for the final rounds of the fight but to Zaleta’s credit he hung tough. The official scores were 119-108, 120-107, and 120-107 all in favor of the clear and obvious winner Narvaez.
Interim WBA minimumweight champion Sammy Gutierrez (27-5-2, 18 KOs) of Mexico retained his title by way of sixth round TKO over Renan Trongco (8-3, 5 KOs) of the Philippines. The southpaw Trongco came out strong dropping Gutierrez in the first round. Gutierrez easily beat the count. Trongco immediatley jumped on Gutierrez in hopes of finishing him off with a series of hard straight lefts to the head. Guiterrez firing back weathered the storm and made it to the final bell of round one. Gutierrez, invested in body work over the next few rounds. The effort paid off as Trongco was beginning to tire badly by round four and his punches no longer had any snap on them. Gutierrez was deducted one point in round six by the referee for excessive use of the elbow. Moments later Gutierrez upped the pressure working Trongco over on the ropes with barrage of head and body shots. The referee waved the bout off. The official time of the stoppage was 2:19 of round six.

In the 4:01 that the bout lasted, King Arthur was much busier than the fighter who faced Carl Froch in November. However the bout ended prematurely in round two when Bozic suffered an injury to his right hand and went to a knee. The fight was then stopped by referee Daniel Van de Weile.
