People imo put slightly too much emphasis on the castillejo KO, Sturm was widely leading on the cards and made the mistake of trading with the guy. He did so in order to avoid the treatment he had received by the crowd when he ran for the last round in the match against the Kiwi puncher (forgot his name). he had got whistled and booed in that incident. That btw was a crowd response that one and for all proved par excellence that german boxing crowds often have no clue about the game.
Sturm had the match in his bag but started acting stupidly in the first castillejo fight.
Sturm btw said he didnt believe a fight against Abrams was likely to come off. "seeing sauerland only has got one World Champ left you can figure yourself how sincerely them calling me out (to make Abrams vs Sturm) is meant to be". Kohl said: "I do not have received anything resembling a substantial or serious fight offer"
Once again welcome back to esb,universum!
As for your quotations of Kohl if I remember correctly Abraham's promoter Sauerland called Kohl's statement a lie publishing an offer for a fight between his boy Abraham and Sturm the day after Kohl had made aforementioned statement.
By the way you damn right in saying that German boxing crowds very often dont have a clue about the game.
Haha! I see that you still have a fairly good opinion of Sturm despite his ko loss to Castillejo,despite his countless pathetic performances against limited journeymen,despite his gift decision against Velasquo.Abraham brutally stopped the Argie-he didnt need the judges ' help.
Well,merry,as you can see I am still not sold on Sturm.
