Tarver and Cunningham exchange words

One thing is for sure, there will be fireworks at the Prudential Center on August 14 live on PBC on Spike.

"You're overlooking me...I wouldn't break camp, but you're breaking camp for me. Good luck August 14. You're crazy. You're out of your mind." - Tarver to Cunningham

"A few years ago, you were calling me a 'nobody.' Let's keep it real. You're a professional mouth-runner. I'm a professional fighter...period." - Cunningham to Tarver

Antonio "Magic Man" Tarver (31-6, 22 KOs) and Steve "U.S.S." Cunningham (28-7, 13 KOs) headline the event with their 12-round heavyweight battle. Televised coverage on Spike begins at 9 p.m. ET/PT when Marco Huck (38-2-1, 26 KO) defends his cruiserweight world title against Krzysztof Glowacki (24-0, 15 KOs).

Tarver and Cunningham exchanged heated words today on a routine media conference call that escalated into a back-and-forth dialogue about mutual respect and ring generalship.

Both Tarver and Cunningham joined the call at minute 20:51 (MP3 linked above) following a much friendlier media Q&A featuring the televised undercard fighters Marco Huck and Krzysztof Glowacki.
