I agree with the above, but my original post alluded to the financial reward of the Sturm fight being significant enough to forego a guaranteed opportunity of a world title fight, which is pretty much the same thing you've written.
In any case, for the boxing fan, I think this new arrangement of Soliman having to fight Sturm in order to fight for the IBF title pleases most.
