Felix Sturm vs Robert Stieglitz?

Former 4-Time World Middleweight Champion Felix Sturm issued the following statement on his official Twitter account (@SturmBoxing) on the public challenge made to him by former super middleweight champion Robert Stieglitz after Stieglitz’ fight last Saturday in Dessau, Germany:

“I was just told that Robert Stieglitz challenged me to a fight. I have no problem with that, we can do it anytime. But I hope that there won’t be any excuses or that an injury happens all of the sudden to prevent a fight from happening. We’ll see if he was serious about challenging me or if he’s just another boxer who talks to much to get some attention by the public.”

Sturm vs. Soliman 2 – Final Presser Quotes

Felix Sturm, IBF World Middleweight Champion: “I’m not mad or anything. I don’t care about that whole doping theatre anymore. He and his team have to live with that. He’s trying to play games once again but that doesn’t matter to me. I had a perfect preparation and I am in tip-top shape.

I had to do this fight since he is my mandatory challenger. But that is a good thing because I can make things right. People will forget about the first fight after this one.
