I like Darren Barker, he’s a great bloke, and a good boxer, it’s a shame injury cut short his career, but the truth is even a fit and healthy Barker would probably have lost to Sturm. Felix is a little better than Darren but he’s nowhere near good enough to beat Golovkin. If Sturm fights Golovkin he will get KO’d by GGG no doubt about it.

“Sturm did great against Barker”

I think you’ll find Barker had a really bad hip injury.

Golovkin will brutаlу bеаt Sturm аnd knock him out

So who’s actually #1 @ 160Lb? A massive unification series needs to be held! S.G.Martinez, Felix Sturm, Martin Murray, Triple G, Dan Geale & what’s his name? who holds the WBO title could all make for a decent super 6 competition.

Next they’ll try to tell us Chris John is an ATG featherweight. Based on such a long similar alphabelt run.

Man…..he looks fit to fight

Sturm’s been trashed by U.S. fans for years, yet he’s one of the best boxer-punchers out there. He has a vicious left jab, but he’s never been a big banger. At one point, he hired a nutritionist and entered a weight training program to improve his power, all to no avail. Sturm fought only once in the U.S., and in my opinion, beat Oscar de la Hoya. However, Oscar got the homeboy nod. Since then, Felix never returned to the U.S. (you can’t blame him). That might explain why American fans don’t like him. However, he’s got years of experience, and not “all” his opponents were tomato cans. At 35, I don’t think Sturm could beat GGG, but his dangerous jab could give Gennady lots of problems in the cut department. It’d be an exciting contest.

he will keep the title another 10yrs. defending against safe opponents. he has no heart or the balls to clean out the division.

geale looks tops last night, the GGG fight is very interesting. Geale could trouble GGG

JE, Sturm is more deserving of that title than Barker. Barker got a gift win over Geale–he never should have had the title in the first place. Sturm got it back.

Wow, a 4-time”world champion” who never defeated any of the big ones in the division to earn those belts. Man I must say he is all times biggest paper champion ever. Never have there been possible in the past to make it but he did it, some has to be the first I guess :-/

He have NEVER defeated any of the best middleweights in his career. He was defeated by Oscar De La Hoya by UD and never fought Bernard Hopkins, Jermain Taylor, Kelly Pavlik, Arthur Abraham, Winky Wright, Sergio Martinez or Edison Miranda and all named have over the years been regarded as the best middleweight fighters becouse Sturm have never had any intetntions to fight an thretning opponent.

No Hall of Famer here, just an ordinary boxer who have been more of a buisness man then a top boxer. Sad but true.

HidalG0 – He’s “back where he belongs?” By that I assume you mean that he’s staying as far away from real champion Sergio Martinez as possible. I also have to assume that means staying away from the most dangerous titlist, GGG. You can also bet that there is zero chance he’ll face Peter Quillen. It will be back to “mandatories,” i.e. fighters you’ve likely not heard about. It is almost embarrassing to call him a four-time world champion — because he’s consistently avoided fighting real champions. He’s an above-average top 10 fighter and has never really shown anything more than that.

Your comments are crazy so far. He went to the USA and beat Oscar in his prime? Oscar was an old cross dressing cocaine addicted bloated welterweight at that time. Do you really think that was his prime? And he did great against Barker because Barker quit with an injury and retired in his last fight. This guy is one of the biggest over achievers of this generation. Nothing more. He at his peak could perhaps be the 4th or 5th best middleweight depeneding on what the division looked like at the time.

He finally learned, training camp is to train, not to get his weight down from way too high.
The last couple of fights he looked sharp. He has one of the best jabs of his generation. Not quite as powerful as Tiger’s. Perhaps faster.
No rematch with Delahoya, and in spite of what Hopkins said about fighting Strum, he didn’t.
Strum did get a couple of home town decisions but lost one or two of them too. The last one he lost didn’t count, the other guy was doped.
I think though because of that fight, he started maintaining a non-blubber closer to middleweight walking around weight.

Sturm did great against Barker.

You’ve got that right Hildalg0 ! Sturm went to US and beat Oscar de l a Hoya in Oscar’s prime and in his back yard, that matters something, he is s future hall of famer! God bless

Great short film. I actually favored Sturm to beat Barker. Sturm is back where he belongs.
