Felix Sturm Considering a Move To Super Middleweight

By Ruslan Chikov

According to sources in Germany, Felix Sturm (37-4-2, 16KOs), a career middleweight since the start of his career in 2001, is considering a move to the super middleweight division. Sturm captured the WBA, WBO championships at 160. He lost his last two at 160, both to Aussie fighters. He was beaten by Daniel Geale by split decision in September and then beaten by Sam Soliman by unanimous decision earlier this month.

One fight Sturm has mentioned at 168 is WBO champion Arthur Abraham. The only problem would be the clash of television networks. Abraham has a deal, through Sauerland Event, on ARD. Sturm has a multi-fight deal with Sat.1.

Problem is Abraham can punch and Sturm has always avoided the big hitters. He must think Abraham is shot otherwise he wouldn't go near him. I will believe it when I see it

I don't know about this move. Sturm has always been a pretty solid boxer, but he never packed much of a punch at middleweight. Stick to 160 and fight GGG for a title. Why the hell not?

[QUOTE=BattlingNelson;13016831]Sturm vs. Abraham! Bring it on. Some 3-4 years to late but now both looks on the down side of their careers, so it's still a highly interesting match-up.[/QUOTE] This would be a huge fight in Germany I think. However,…
