Photos: Soliman Quickly Ends Title Run of Felix Sturm

König Palast in Krefeld, Germany - 40-year-old Sam Soliman (44-11, 18 KOs) captured the IBF middleweight championship with a dominating twelve round unanimous decision over Felix Sturm (39-4-2, 18 KOs) in their anticipated rematch. The scores were 118-110, 117-111 and 118-110. Soliman's workrate and awkward style was too much for Sturm to deal with. Every time Sturm was able to muster up a good combination, Soliman came swinging back with a flurry of punches from all angles.

This was Sturm's first defense of the title that he captured from Darren Barker. Soliman also won their first meeting early last year, but the fight was changed to a no-contest after the Australian tested positive for a banned substance.

Soliman looks roided out of his mind.
