According to a few sources, German television network Sat.1, has reserved a date of April 13th for the next title defense for WBA middleweight king Felix Sturm (36-2-2, 15KOs). There have been reports that Sturm is considering a unification for that date, with undefeated WBO champion Dmitry Pirog (19-0, 15KOs) and IBF beltholder Daniel Geale (26-1, 15KOs) as the leading candidates. Both Pirog and Geale are very interested in facing Sturm, although Pirog would probably be a more likely candidate with Geale already scheduled for a hometown bout in Tasmania on February 29th.

[QUOTE=rey guey]I was thinking the same about Sturm. not hating on Geale but Pirog and Golovkin seem a bit more difficult. if Sturm waits long enough Golovkin will have to face N'Jikam sooner or later. the WBO was supposed to have ordered it 6 months ago but I don't know what happened.[/QUOTE...
