Gennady Golovkin's Manager Rips Felix Sturm and N'Dam

By Ruslan Chikov

Oleg Hermann, manager of WBA "regular" middleweight champion Gennady Golovkin, is upset that his boxer is unable to secure fights with Felix Sturm, the WBA's "super champion" at middleweight, and the WBA's interim-champion Hassan N'Dam. Golovkin will face Kassim Ouma in early June, while Sturm fights British boxer Matthew Macklin on June 25. The WBA has ordered Golovkin and N'Dam to fight each other by the fall and Sturm has to face the winner.

"It is very hard to find a good opponent. Everybody knows that Felix Sturm is afraid of Gennady. Strictly speaking, Sturm should get out of boxing and become a marathon runner because he is running fast and long. He has an excellent chance to become a champion in athletics. Obviously, Hassan N'Dam has already gone into hiding. I hope they are running in circles because by the end of the summer they are going to re-appear in our path. The WBA has already ordered N'Dam to fight Gennady, and then it's going to be Sturm's turn," Hermann said.

Golovkin should take care and knock guys like Kassim out and his manager should make noise for the unification. WBA should clear the situation to keep their credibility.

[QUOTE=JoeWbbmest311;10428470]Last year Golovkin issued an open challenge to anyone in the WBA's top 15. N'dam responded right away saying that they would take the fight. That's when Golovkin announced his fight with Milton Nunez (ranked 15). Also, it seems every…
