Not bad company for someone 'ordinary'.
And yes if you could have simply said that Sturm is well past prime but he did hang on and defend the WBA belt for 5 years which is about 4 years longer than Green or Mundine have managed to hold onto any of the trinkets they acquired.
I never called Sturm an ATG but he's had a career that topic number 1 and topic number 2 in the Aussie forum could only have dreamed of.
That is all
I called him ordinary by the way he fights and who has fought in those 5 stellar years which aint too much diff to Choc and Greens resume, both would have belted the piss out of him at the time
Comparing ODH vs the greats to the one vs Sturm is a joke.
