Barker-Sturm Reportedly Done For 12/7 in Germany

By Rick Reeno

Sources with knowledge of the details have advised BoxingScene.com that a deal was reached for IBF middleweight champion Darren Barker (26-1, 16KOs) to defend his title against mandatory challenger Felix Sturm (38-3-2, 17KOs) on December 7th at the Porsche Arena in Stuttgart Germany.

Barker captured the title in August with a close split decision win over Daniel Geale, who defeated Sturm, also by split decision, last September.

When Barker won the belt, his promoter Eddie Hearn was going to make a serious push to bring Sturm to the UK - but we've been told that Barker was compensated well to travel over to Sturm's home turf.

I really hope Barker wins this fight. Sturm could have been great after the De La Hoya fight, but he took the easy way out, stayed in Germany fighting weak opponents and never improved. Wasted potential.
