Felix Sturm vs Sebastian Zbik in Play For April Showdown?

By Per Ake Persson

According to figosport, Sebastian Zbik has an offer to fight WBA middleweight champion Felix Sturm in April. The offer is claimed to be acceptable and that Zbik, currently in the United States, will sign the contract once he comes home. Earlier this week, Zbik relinquished earlier his position as mandatory challenger to EBU ruler Grzegorz Proksa, a fight that was set for March 2 and was to be promoted by Sturm Box Promotion, who now might stage Sturm vs Zbik.
 
Universum spokesman Steffen Soltau said that "we are planning something differently for Sebastian. Definitely a world championship but that is all I can say at the moment".

It's not that Zbik is a bad opponent. He had a close one with JCCJr. Still I'd have preferred a return with Macklin, a fight with Proksa or a fight with Golovkin. All of those are bigger threats to Sturm…

[QUOTE=richardt;11733022]Dibella didn't fuk up, Lee screwed himself big time!! Lee pulled out because he "thought he might have an offer" from Sturm and screwed over DiBella, Lee's fans in NY, and Showtime as well. If Zibik fights Sturn, that will…
