Sturm: I Can Still Beat Any Middleweight in The World

By Ruslan Chikov

Former middleweight champion Felix Sturm (37-4-2, 16 KOs) is planning to pursue another world crown at 160-pounds, before considering the possibility of a move to super middleweight. Sturm has lost his last two bouts at 160, both decisions, to Daniel Geale and Sam Soliman. He feels the loss to Soliman was a robbery. Sturm, a former WBO and two-time WBA champion, wants a fourth title at 160 and is confident of being able to beat any boxer at the weight.

"The judges' decision was a bad joke. I was convinced that I won. After the fight, I got a lot of text messages and e-mails from abroad with questions - "what's going on?' Someone seems to be working against me. When [Soliman] heard the verdict, even he couldn't even believe it. It's funny that in Germany decisions are made against me," Sturm said.

"This is a difficult time for me, but I will find the right course for my path. I want to win the [middleweight] title for the fourth time. I can beat anyone in the world at middleweight. Maybe one day I will go to a higher division, but so far I plan to remain at middleweight."

I like Catic, but he can't expect to win the fight when he lands 8 per round. He needs to let his hands go more. No doubt he is at a different level to Soliman, but for some reason his…

Sturm got stopped by Castellejo he better stay at MW, SMW's would be too strong for him why not fight Golovkin? or enter the race for Martinez if he's unencumbered by a belt anymore, go for the real title wouldn't…

Did I just read that right? Sperm complaining about questionable decisions? :lol1::pat: I said that Soliman has a chance at upsetting him prior to the fight, and the fact that he did says more about Sperm's limitations than it does…
