Felix Sturm Open To Facing Abraham vs. Stieglitz Victor

By Ruslan Chikov

WBA middleweight champion Felix Sturm (37-2-2, 16KOs) is counting down the days until his September 1st unification with IBF beltholder Daniel Geale (27-1, 15KOs) at Koenig Pilsener Arena in Oberhausen, Nordrhein-Westfalen, Germany.

Sturm is an interested party in this Saturday's super middleweight showdown in Berlin. Robert Stieglitz (42-2, 23KOs) will defend his WBO super middleweight crown against former middleweight champion "King" Arthur Abraham (34-3, 27KOs).

He doesn't rule out the possibility of moving up in weight to face the winner.

"I would move up to face the winner, I'm open to everything," Sturm said.

While he doesn't believe Abraham is past his best, he still gives Stieglitz the edge to win.

"Abraham is the classic puncher. Robert is the more complete fighter and fast on his feet. On Saturday he's going to make ends meet, he is my favorite [to win]," Sturm said.
