SecondsOut (July 19, 2012) Doghouse Boxing
- - Yoan Pablo Hernandez (26-1, 13 KOs) will take on mandatory challenger Troy Ross in Bamberg, Germany on September 15.

The 27-year-old IBF Cruiserweight World Champion face Ross (25-2, 16 KOs) at the Stechert Arena in Bamberg, Germany.

Hernandez won the interim WBA title back in February of last year in Muelheim (Ruhr) against Steve Herelius from France. He really shot to fame on October 1, 2011. In Neubrandenburg he dethroned the then IBF World Champion Steve Cunningham by a technical decision. The rematch against the American took place in Frankfurt (Main) in February. Hernandez sent Cunningham crashing to the floor twice during round four. But the former champion refused to give up and fought his way back into the fight. After twelve rounds the judges saw Hernandez in front of Cunningham and scored the bout with 116:110, 116:110 and 115:111 in favour of the Cuban. As a reward he did not only regain the IBF-Belt but was also awarded the belt of "The Ring" magazine.

"This was one of the best Championship fights I have ever seen," said Coach Ulli Wegner afterwards. "Yoan Pablo once again proved his class and won against a very strong and competitive Steve Cunningham." Now the trainer and his prodigy will be travelling to Bamberg.

In Troy Ross, currently number three in the IBF rankings, Hernandez faces a tricky opponent. "He is very quick, agile and throws hard punches. I saw his title bout against Steve Cunningham back in June 2010. He was really strong but had to stop the fight due to a heavy cut. He was really unfortunate and will try everything to beat me and become the new world champion."
