Felix Sturm Pushing Forward, But Who Does Proksa Fight?

By Ruslan Chikov

Felix Sturm's promotional company, Sturm Box Promotions, won the mandatory purse bid for the EBU middleweight bout between champion Grzegorz Proksa (26-0, 19 KOs) and challenger Sebastian Zbik (30-1, 10 KOs). Sturm is pushing to stage the bout in March or April in Germany, but the fight has stalled because Zbik refuses to fight for Sturm. Instead, Zbik wants to fight Sturm for the WBA middleweight crown.

"I don't want fight for Sturm, I want to fight him," Zbik said earlier.

Proksa on the other hand is ready to fight, against any challenger presented.

"I'm certain that I'm going to fight in March. I'm not sure who I'm going to defend the title against. Right now it's only the question of who. If Zbik withdraws, let him go his own way! I'll face an opponent selected by the EBU, or I'll get the green light and select another opponent attractive option," Proksa told Ring Polska.

Proska should come to the US and fight Quillen in New Jersey. he could build a huge fan base there and have a notable win would spring board him into bigger fights.

[QUOTE=giacomino;11643820]Not going to happen. He is like Chris John. The WBA let's him "defend" his paper title against any safe opponent he can find[/QUOTE] And still he needs obvious robberies to hang onto the belt. Martinez should go over to…
