Steve Cunningham: World's nicest man

610x_medium Steve Cunningham, who had hoped to fight Enzo Maccarinelli in Manchester on March 14, had his hopes dashed when it was announced that Maccarinelli would face interim WBO cruiserweight titlist Victor Ramirez.

His team sent out a press release with Cunningham's thoughts on the situation, and I naturally expected a couple verbal jabs. Instead, he just said this:

"Man, I thought this would be a great time to fight Enzo. We tried to put that fight together last summer, but it never happened. I’m ready to dust off my passport, but that’ll have to wait for now.

"Oh man, It’s a shame. I think it would have been a seriously great fight and I’ve wanted to fight in Britain for a long time. Shoot, I don’t have any luck getting it on with British fighters. Haye moved to the heavyweights last year and now this chance to face Enzo is shot. You know, one day I will get to fight in Britain or face Enzo. I’m sure it’ll happen.

"I wish Enzo and Victor Ramirez the best. I’m sure it’ll be a great fight. I didn’t get to see Victor beat Alexander Alexeev, but heard it was a good fight. I’m sure it’ll be a banger, they’re both heavy hitters."

In an age of trash talkers, Steve Cunningham is anything but.

The Ramirez-Maccarinelli bout will be part of the Khan-Barrera undercard.
