Former WBO, IBF and WBA Super champ Felix Sturm will make a comeback on December 19 after a 4-year long break from boxing. Sturm, who fought for Hamburg-based Universum Box Promotion, now wants to prove that there will be no ring rust to see when he steps back in the ring against an opponent to be named on a Universum fight night event in December.
The venue and opponent will be announced shortly. The negotiations are nearing completion. Sturm will fight a 10-rounder. BILD+ will exclusively broadcast the fight for German boxing fans and will stream live from 7 pm on.
Universum CEO Ismail Özen-Otto: “We are pleased that Felix has returned home to Universum, where his professional career began almost exactly 20 years ago. The five-time world champion from three federations will certainly contribute to making the German boxing scene more exciting to the general public again”.
Felix Sturm: “I am returning back to my roots with Universum. I am ready to fight the best in the world. The journey has only just begun…”
