Steve “USS” Cunningham looks to become a 3x champion on April 16th

It is official – Philadelphia native Steve “USS” Cunningham (28-7-1, 13 ko’s) will return to prime-time TV for another crack at championship gold when he faces Krzysztof “Head” Glowacki (25-0, 16 ko’s) of Poland for the WBO Cruiserweight title. The bout will happen at the Barclays Center in Brooklyn, New York City on April 16, 2016. NBC will broadcast as part of the Premier Boxing Champions series.

It is a very interesting match-up that has fans on both sides fired up. Glowacki is a crude 29-year-old southpaw brawler who will be making the first defense of the title he won last summer. Cunningham, the versatile 39-year-old veteran, has a chance to become a three-time division champion.

Both have one significant common opponent in Marco Huck. Both fighters knocked Huck out late in fights that had a world title on the line. Cunningham did it overseas way back in 2007, Glowacki pulled it off in a 2015 Fight of the Year candidate.

After a three-year stint competing as a heavyweight, Cunningham is back in the weight class where he found the most career success. His run as a heavyweight isn’t considered a wash by any means,  but this is arguably his best career move as the records state that he went 4-3-1 during that span.

Not that the near .500 record as a heavyweight is entirely his doing, There have been times when USS has turned in classic battles, there have been other times when the contest was a snooze. He has been shafted by judge and cheated by opposition caught using PED’s. Through it all he keeps on trucking along, and at 39-years-old, he still seems to be in top condition.

An interesting twist to this bout is that Glowacki is very familiar with Cunningham despite his lack of exposure to the USA. It has been well documented that Cunningham spent the early part of this decade competing overseas, knocking off fighters held as hero’s throughout Europe which included two stops on Glowacki’s native Poland.

At a press conference at Gallagher’s Steakhouse in NYC- Cunningham said:

“I won both of my world titles overseas. Guys like Glowacki grew up watching me fight in their home countries. He’s frothing at the mouth to get at me. Sometimes the meal that you want isn’t a good one for you. I’m going to upset his stomach really good.

“It’s going to be a good fight. I come intelligent and I come to fight. I’m going to make other 40-year-olds jealous when everyone sees the work that I do. I’m going to be prepared mentally, spiritually and physically.”

Glowacki will be making only his second appearance in the USA. His debut was spectacular and captured the attention of the American fight fans with an 11th round, come-from-behind knockout victory at the Prudential Center to win the belt.

He is expected to bring a lively audience to the Barclays Center this spring. If you’ve ever been to a Tomas Adamek fight, you will know that these fans really get into it.

Glowacki recently told the boxing media: “I am so excited to come back to the US for a major fight.”

“I respect Steve Cunningham as a sportsman and as a man. He is a world-class fighter and I know that he will be well prepared against me.”

“Head” also told fightnews.com “I can tell you that I was very happy when Steve decided to leave the heavyweight division and come back as a cruiserweight. I always wanted to fight him and now my wish will be granted. I don’t pay attention to how many years he’s spent in boxing. What I’m paying attention to is how well he’s always prepared, the problems his enormous reach causes, and how smart Cunningham is in the ring.”

Vegas has yet to release odds on the bout. Cunningham has a 3″ height advantage and 7″ reach advantage along with more experience.

Glowcki sports a 10-year youth advantage and a higher knockout percentage on his side.

Who do you like in this one? The young lion who seems to have great days ahead or the older veteran who does not have time on his side?

This bout will serve as the co-feature for junior welterweight showdown between former Olympian Errol Spence Jr. and Chris Algeri.

  1. Glad to see Steve drop back to cruiserweight where he belongs. Though he had current heavyweight champ Tyson Fury on the canvas Steve comes in between 205-210. Yes Joe Louis was 190 and Rocky Marciano 185 but I don’t want to say Steve is in their class. Glowacki’s knockout of Huck was awesome, I was there and thought if anyone wanted to fight the winner they will change their mind after seeing this guy. You cannot count USS Cunningham out. He had two fights with Adamek that I felt he won the first and drew in the second though he got the short end of the stick on both occasions. It should be a good fight and Glowack may need a knockout to win.
