Sturm vs Zbik Agreement Reached For April 13 Showdown

By Ruslan Chikov

BoxingScene.com had reported on Wednesday that a deal was close. Both sides have now agreed to fight. On April 13 in Germany, Felix Sturm (36-2-2, 15KOs) will defend his WBA middleweight title against former Universum stablemate, and ex-WBC champion, Sebastian Zbik (30-1, 10KOs).

The two fighters have agreed on the terms. They are only waiting for the WBA's approval because Gennady Golovkin is the mandatory challenger to Sturm and his side is expected to protest the finalization of this fight.

Sturm said - "Zbik has had a big mouth, but now its time to prove it in the ring, man against man. I've always said that I want to face the best in the world and that includes Zbik from the Hamburg stable of Universum."

[QUOTE=DoktorSleepless;11737786]Zbik fighting for a world title instead of an EBU strap is not ducking. But yes, Lee vs Proksa is the first fight I wanted when the Quillin fight didn't go through.[/QUOTE] 1-There was talk of Zbik being unwilling to…
