By Julio Thyme 03/02/2011

Yoan Pablo Hernandez (23-1, 12 KO’s) is scheduled for the most important fight of his professional career. The Cuban-born southpaw will go up against the tough Steve Herelius (21-1-1, 12 KOs) for the interim-WBA cruiserweight title. The defending champion from France is not unknown in Germany. He finally captured the interim-title in July of last year in Stuttgart against former world champion Firat Arslan.
