Sturm: Pirog is The Toughest To Beat, Golovkin Overrated

By Inna Lagun, Allboxing.ru

WBA "super" middleweight champion Felix Sturm is days away from a scheduled defense against undefeated British boxer Martin Murray. The year is almost over and several challengers are ready to take Sturm on. Sturm sat down with Abendblatt and discussed a number of subjects - including the reasons for the failed negotiations to make a rematch with Matthew Macklin, whether he plans to face his mandatory Gennady Golovkin and more.e art.

On the rematch with Macklin: - It didn't take place because Macklin did not want to fight. At the end of the negotiations, we offered him 70% more than he received in the first fight. However, he only had excuses.

Possible opponents: - Without a doubt, the most dangerous is the Russian boxer, WBO champion Dmitry Pirog. He is the most difficult to beat because his style is very complex. Argentinean Sergio Martinez is also very strong, but [his style] is more convenient for me, and the same goes for the Australian - IBF champion Daniel Geale and the WBC champion Julio Cesar Chavez from Mexico.

Regarding mandatory challenger Gennady Golovkin - We'll see. Golovkin - is one of many potential competitors. I think he's immensely overrated by his advisers. I would have fought with him at any time.
