Default Re: Felix Sturm vs. Sam Soliman RBR

Geale definitely beat Sturm. Sturm wasn't comfortable fighting at Geale's pace and didn't pick things up until the finish line was in sight.

On an unrelated matter, The Classy Jimmy Lennon Jr > Michael "Let's get ready to Retire" Buffer.

So you actually have a chance to get a decision against Sturm in Germany, which is good. Unlike if you're fighting a Sauerland fighter.
I would say it's more safe to fight Sturm in Germany, than it is to fight Alexander in St. Louis
That's only since he started promoting himself, he used to get more protection under a proper promoter.

Think before posting.

BTW all of his last fights were legit (Zbik,Macklin,Murray,Soliman).
Macklin, Murray, Soliman were all bouts that should have been easy wins for Sturm. Murray has nothing on his record besides the generous draw. Macklin has very little besides being robbed by Sturm IMO.
