Dmitry Pirog: I'm Ready For Sturm, Even in Germany

By Ruslan Chikov & Alexander Pavlov

Undefeated WBO middleweight champion Dmitry Pirog (19-0, 15KOs) is ready to face WBA king Felix Sturm (36-2-2, 15KOs) in any location - even in Sturm's home of Germany. Pirog has been mentioned as possible opponent for Sturm on April 13th. Pirog is holding out hope that Sturm follows through with a possible fight, but he's not sure if anything is going to actually happen with the ongoing rumors.

"Finally, [Sturm] has already started talking about a fight with me, although in the past he's been silent on this subject. So, there is the possibility to organize a fight between us, although he had previously tried to ignore me. I hope this fight doesn't just stay at the level of conversation, because I'm ready to act - even in Germany," Pirog said. "If Sturm decides to fight me, I'm ready to sign the contract tomorrow. It's important for me to have this fight happen."

[QUOTE=HeroBando;11625414]I've read some of your posts, you're a good poster but seem misinformed on this topic. It'd be nice if you could list some names he's poosyfooting around. Maybe Golovkin, but check the link I posted above, doesn't seem that…

[QUOTE=DoktorSleepless;11625581]From the few Golovkin fights I've seen, he just doesn't really impress me. He was being mostly outboxed by Ouma until the knock out. [/QUOTE] I though GG did well considering how young he is and seeing as how Ouma…
