Golovkin To Sturm: You Can Get a Title Shot Right Away

By Ruslan Chikov

WBA/IBO middleweight champion Gennady Golovkin (25-0, 22KOs) has no problem with helping out Felix Sturm (37-4-2, 16KOs). For two years Golovkin chased after Sturm but he never came close to getting the fight. Sturm has lost his last two, to Daniel Geale and Sam Soliman, and now Golovkin is the holder of Sturm's old belt.

Sturm still has a television deal remaining with SAT-1. Golovkin will defend his title on March 30th in Monte Carlo against Nobuhiro Ishida. After that, he welcomes a title defense against Sturm. Golovkin would like to return in the month of June in a big fight.

"I would fight fight him on his channel, in his city. And we can share the revenue equally. Felix can immediately get a fight for his former title," Golovkin was quoted by Hamburger Abendblatt.

[QUOTE=Tobi.G]I guess GGG wants to become more popular in germany. There is no other reason for him to want this fight. But Sturm is in desperate need of an belt or he will not be shown in TV anymore. So maybe he HAS to take this "chance". Of course Golovkin would knock him out. At least one las...

Sturm should retire. He is not half the fighter he used to be. He looked very bad in the last fight. In his prime it would be more competitive fight, but still GGG would stop him. I can't blame Strum for not taking this fight. He knows he doesn't have a chance, he is coming from 2 defeats and h...
