Although Sauerland Event is still bullish on putting together a cruiserweight tournament, which was originally conceived as a Super Six-style tournament but could be reduced to four participants, it will be put off again, Sauerland's Chris Meyer told ESPN.com. Originally, Sauerland Event hoped to begin it in December and then pushed it into early 2011. Now it may be moved back again as it tries to get mandatory bouts out of the way
. First Marco Huck
, who will be one of the entrants, made his mandatory defense last Saturday and outpointed Denis Lebedev. Next up, Steve Cunningham
, who is also ticketed for the tournament, will defend his belt in a mandatory against Enad Licina on Jan. 22 in Germany. Sauerland also hopes to include titlist Krzysztof Wlodarczyk
(who has an April mandatory against Francisco Palacios) and either Guillermo Jones or Steve Herelius
, who also have belts. Herelius may fight mandatory Yoan Pablo Hernandez, another Sauerland fighter, in early 2011 with the winner going into the field
. "We want the belts in the tourney but can't have the mandatories delayed," Meyer said.
