Felix Sturm Knocks Ronald Hearns Out in Seven

By Chris LaBate

At Porsche Arena in Stuttgart, Baden-Württemberg, Germany, WBA middleweight champion Felix Sturm (35-2, 15KOs) dominated the action in a battle of jabs. Ronald Hearns (26-2, 20KOs) was unable to get past Sturm's guard but landed a few decent jabs that busted open the champion's mouth. In the fifth, Sturm started to come on and Hearns began to fade. Sturm saw his opponent starting to fade out and began to put his punches together. In the seventh, Sturm caught Hearns flush with a bomb and blasted away until the referee jumped in to stop the action at 2:30.
