Felix Sturm Blasts Out Predrag Radosevic in Four

By Alexey Sukachev

Westfalenhalle in Dortmund, Germany - Former three time middleweight champion Felix Sturm (38-3-2, 17 KOs) earned the opportunity to go for a fourth crown at 160-pounds, as he knocke dout previously unbeaten Predrag Radosevic (27-1, 9 KOs) in an IBF final eliminator. Three knockdowns by Sturm, who put Radosevic down once in the third and then finished him off with body damage for two more knockdowns in the fourth to force the intervention of Radosevic’s corner.

WBA #2 and IBF #3 Sturm, 34, who was upset by the Australian Daniel Geale in the WBA/IBF unification in the fall of 2012 and then was outpointed by Sam Soliman in another eliminator (later reversed to a "No Contest" after Geale's countryman tested positive for a banned substance) was methodically effective and calculating from the opening seconds. He kept IBF #4 Radosevic at bay with his trademark jab. He landed big shots as well, looking to land specifically big shots at the liver section of the Montenegrin, and he got what he wanted in rounds three and four. Radosevic, 28, was game and willing but was in the other league with the German champion.

A better of revenge with Susi Kentikian (31-2, 16 KOs) capturing the the WBA flyweight crown with a ten round unanimous decision over Carina Moreno (23-5, 6 KOs). The scores were 96-94, 97-93 and 97-93. Moreno won a close split decision in their first meeting last December.

Radosevic looked like he didn't want to be in that ring.

[QUOTE=Public_Enemy;13535833]Didn't see the fight but Sturm was ripped at the weigh in. Now he says he wants GGG[B][/B] or Geale. Still don't know if he faces Golovkin but Geale seems likely.[/QUOTE] Absolute and utter lie. Sturm ducked GGG in a…

[QUOTE=Mikhnienko;13536652]Golovkin Martinez Pirog Quillin Macklin Khurtsidze Lee Jacobs Chavez Proksa A little unproved but look to Korobov Barker[/QUOTE] Correct, and to my point, Sturm fought one of these guys, Macklin, and, IMO, lost. Golovkin is in a class by himself…
