Default Felix Sturm - Sam Soliman

How do you guys see this pan out? Is it a legit fight?
I didn't know Soliman to be honest and I think most people over here in Germany don't know him either.
Soliman already lost eleven times and has a rather low knockout percentage and he is 39 years old.
He lost thrice against Mundine, who just got manhandled by Geale and the latter had a close fight against Sturm, himself.

Soliman was a good fighter not great but capable fighter 6 years ago, fought Wink Wright when Wright first came up to middleweight and landed a decent amount of punches but none carried real power

did ok on the contender cant remember what season

Sturm should have no trouble beating this guy

Adnan still has enough left to UD Soliman IMO.

War Adnan. All-4-mom.

I still think Sturm is at his best. He was just too lazy against Geale and Murray.
Against Zbik he showed his skills. I hope he is not done yet.

Soliman is ranked highly at MW somehow.

He has been on a streak in the last few years against mediocre fighters.

Should be easy work for Sturm.

Also I have Sturm to win this in my long running accumumator bet.

GGG
Geale
Galvin
and Matthyse have all done the business so far.

Now I just need Sturm, Frampton, Garcia and Martinez to finish the job!

The Zbik level of performance should be enough for Sturm to get the job done.

They all just to win? No method of victory bets?

I always liked Soliman, seems like a decent guy, but with that being said I don't think he will win against Sturm.

But Soliman will make it a rough affair, and I think Sturm will know he was in a fight, as this is Soliman's last hurrah so we might see something unexpected.

Sturm 117-111 Soliman

That would be a nice storybook ending for Felix, surely.

That or DLH coming out of retirement.

Sturm should have attacked after knocking Soliman down in the 2nd. That was a vicious shot. He should have thrown more punches
