Felix Sturm Has No Interest in Returning Arthur Abraham
By Ruslan Chikov
The WBA's super champion at middleweight, Felix Sturm (36-2-1, 15KOs), is not interested in a possible fight with countryman Arthur Abraham (32-3, 26KOs), who is planning to possible return to the middleweight division in the near future. At the moment, Sturm is claiming that Sauerland Event, the promoters behind Abraham, are overpricing their boxer. For Sturm to consider such a fight, he says Arthur's price tag needs to be lowered. He consider Abrahama being worth such a high-end price when considering his recent shortcomings.
"Such a fight would only be interesting to Arthur because he would once again earn a lot of money. But right now he is not worth money being demanded by his promoter. Arthur's price is too high. He doesn't know how box, only to fight with power. Therefore, Arthur has lost respect. He's had some hard times because it was hard for him to make weight in this division. He can either be a businessman or a boxer," Sturm said.
Sturm after all these years is still ducking a shopworn Abraham.Comment by giacomino on 06-28-2011
