Felix Trinidad-Felix Sturm a Done Deal?

By Rick Reeno

A story which first appeared on the very popular Spanish website PrimeraHora, is making the rounds in the Puerto Rican press. BoxingScene translated the article from Spanish to English and basically got the following details.

A source within Don King Promotions who wanted to remain anonymous, spoke in detail with the website to advise them that the next opponent for Felix Trinidad would be former WBO middleweight champion Felix Sturm. He further said that the fight would take place on March 12, 2004 in a venue that has yet to be decided.

The source said "I cannot offer you more details, for the moment, until Mr. King make name of Felix Trinidad's next opponent public".

Sturm got his claim to fame after fighting the fight of his life against Oscar De La Hoya earlier this year. It was a bout where many fans felt Sturm had won against a De La Hoya who came into the fight out of shape and overlooking the young undefeated fighter.

Felix Trinidad will not make the same mistake against Sturm and should have a much easier time then Oscar De La Hoya. Sturm does not have the power to push Trinidad back and it will take more then a good jab to defeat the powerful middleweight from Puerto Rico. Sturm will have to give another fight of his life performance in order to stand a chance against Trinidad.

Sturm-Trinidad is a good eliminator with the winner fighting Hopkins. Trinidad will have his hands full against Sturm. But Sturm needs to throw more punches than he did vs. dela Hoya.
