Photos: Sturm, Soliman Face To Face at Final Presser

The final press conference took place for the Sturm-Soliman IBF middleweight title eliminator, which takes place on Friday at the ISS Dome in Dusseldorf, Germany.

Felix Sturm, Former: 3-Time Middleweight Champion: "I'm excited about Friday. It's great to be in Dusseldorf and I am in great shape. I had an excellent camp. Some of my sparring partners were able to clone his fighting style and I'm really prepared to fight a guy as unorthodox as Sam. The fight against him will still be very difficult but I'll prevent him from getting into his rhythm. I need to dictate the pace and the distance and I'm sure I'll do just that. Sam is a great challenge and I haven't looked past him. I'm completely focused on him. I want to become champion again and I'll make the first step towards that goal on Friday night. The fans are in for a real treat."

Sam Soliman, IBF No. 1 Ranked Middleweight Contender: "I'm happy to be in Germany. This is a tremendous fight. I know I'm going to have lots of fun in the ring; boxing is fun for me. We had a great camp and I won't let him get into the way of my goal – to become middleweight champion of the world."

Fritz Sdunek, Trainer Felix Sturm: "I was with Felix for the whole camp and he is in tip-top shape. He will have an answer to everything Sam Soliman will bring on Friday. This won't be an easy fight, but Felix, I'm sure, will win this convincingly."

Susi Kentikian, Former Female Word Champion: "It's great to be back in Dusseldorf, despite the disappointment last December. I was looking forward to a rematch with Carina Moreno, but she injured herself and now I'm up against Anstasia Toktaulova. I beat her before in 2008 and I know she'll want to get revenge. But she won't get it. I'm ready for Friday."

Just like Sturm, taking the road of least resistance.

This fight is a complete mismatch. I think Sturm will handily defeat Soliman, and then Sam will dull the pain in one of his pseudo-meditative ice baths. [IMG]http://www.bagofnothing.com/wordpress/wp-content/uploads/2007/08/jeff_ice_bath.jpeg[/IMG]
