American heavyweight Steve Cunningham has informed WBN that reports in Poland of a challenge against WBO cruiserweight Krzysztof Glowacki are not entirely false.
Some media in the European country have the pair trading blows in the spring for Glowacki’s world title belt, even though Cunningham has been campaigning at heavyweight for the past four years.
As Cunningham rarely hits 210 pounds – even when participating in top division bouts, the transition back down the necessary poundage would be an easy one for the American to make should Glowacki talks prove fruitful.
Speaking to WBN recently, Cunningham was asked directly if the reports were true, to which he replied: “Yeah, the Glowacki fight could happen and we working on that now, but there’s no news yet.”
The 39 year-old last fought in August when judges failed to split Cunningham and Antonio Tarver in Newark. Prior to that, Cunningham had claims to a decision against Vyacheslav Glazkov which ultimately went the other way and cost ‘USS’ a seventh career reverse.
Potential opponent Glowacki is – in contrast, on a role – having put together a 25-0 record culminating in a defining victory over Marco Huck on the same bill as Cunningham’s clash with Tarver last summer.
Injuries have since stopped Glowacki from capitalizing quickly on his best win to date and Cunningham will no doubt be seen as a good scalp by the Poles team should the fight eventually get the green light.
