Cruiserweight titlist Steve Cunningham's mandatory defense against ex-light heavyweight titlist Tomasz Adamek of Poland is due by Sept. 29, and Cunningham (21-1, 11 KOs) said he's eager for the fight even if he might not get it that soon. "I was ringside in Chicago for his second fight with Paul Briggs, and I know he can really fight," Cunningham said of Adamek (35-1, 24 KOs), who stopped former undisputed champion O'Neil Bell in an April eliminator. "He was the world champ at 17, and he really proved himself to me that night. He's my mandatory, and I want to fight him as soon as possible." However, Cunningham might not get what he wants. Promoter Don King, who had an acrimonious split with Adamek, might try to secure an exception to the mandatory and match Cunningham with former unified titleholder Jean-Marc Mormeck in Mormeck's native France. Mormeck was knocked out by Haye in his last fight, in November. If the fight happens, Cunningham would have to go overseas to fight for a fourth consecutive time. Source: Dan Rafael espn.com

Another potentially real good fight in the underrated crusierweight division. They're like in-shape heavyweights
