Steve Cunningham Form


Steve Cunningham has not fought since being beaten by Andrew Tabiti back in August 2017.

The 44-year-old hung up his gloves after going 1-3-1 in his final five fights.

Two of those losses, and the draw, came against men who either had won world titles or had at least fought in world title fights.

His split decision draw with Antonio Tarver in August 2015 was sandwiched by unanimous defeats to Vyacheslav Glazkov and Krzysztof Glowacki.

Cunningham’s only professional victory since October 2014 is a six-round decision win over Felipe Romero just over four years ago.

Frank Mir Form


Frank Mir enjoyed a glittering mixed martial arts career that saw him become a two-time UFC heavyweight champion.

However, those days of competing against the best in MMA are long gone.

A knockout defeat to Junior Dos Santos in May 2012 would be the first of eight defeats in an 11-fight spell.

His UFC career came to an end in March 2016 when he was knocked out by Mark Hunt inside one round.

Mir crossed over to Bellator MMA and was subsequently knocked out by Fedor Emilianenko and Javy Ayala.

He did stop the rot with a decision win over Roy Nelson in October 2019, but he has not fought since.
