Golovkin's Manager Shreds Sturm Over Pavlik Fight

By Ruslan Chikov

Oleg Hermann, Manager of WBA "regular" middleweight champion Gennady Golovkin (20-0, 17KOs), is very upset with the "super champion" of the division, Felix Sturm. Golovkin has tried to secure a fight with Sturm for a long time. They saw a recent report where Sturm was interested in facing former champion Kelly Pavlik in the summer. Pavlik is already set to face Alfonso Lopez on the Pacquiao-Mosley pay-per-view on May 7 in Las Vegas.

"I know that he's trying to find a worthy opponent for June," said Hermann. "Of course, he will find another Lorenzo or Hearns to get some laughter. Sturm says he wants to fight against Kelly Pavlik. Excellent! He wants to fight with someone who didn't box for a year and was recently discharged from the clinic for alcoholics. Pavlik is a great boxer, but he needs time to get back in shape."

"Gennady, the mandatory challenger, has been trying for a year to fight him. We are ready, and our fans want this fight. Felix also knows that he needs scheduled this meeting in order to become a full champion. He wears a championship belt, which no longer belongs to him. If Sturm has a shred of pride, he should do it. Otherwise he will remain in history as the 'constantly avoiding fighter.'

Typical Sturm. Loves calling out fighters he won't actually fight. And he'll never, ever take a chance on someone as hard-hitting as Golovkin. If Sturm wanted the best, he should be calling out Martinez, but he wouldn't fight him either,…

Anyone who has followed this story has to view this development as hilarious! In Pavlik's only interview since he discharged from rehab he said he might be willing to go to Germany and fight Sturm at a catchweight of 166.…

For the German viewers Golovkin ain't no different from all the bums Sturm was fighting. Why the hell Sturm would care about Golovkin? He will be paid the same amount of money as for Hearnses of the world. The only…
