Sturm Fully Prepared For Stieglitz


By William Wade

Just a few days before taking on fellow German Robert Stieglitz at the Porsche Arena in Stuttgart, Germany on Saturday Felix ‘The Fighter’ Sturm took some time out to answer a few questions from MaxBoxing.


When asked how preparations for this weekend’s fight in Stuttgart had gone, he replied that the training camp had been perfect, adding, “I hired Magomed Schaburow as my new coach and he has shown me new things each and every day. It was actually fun to train for this fight. Of course, it also made it easier that I can weigh a couple of pounds more than before. I think that’s an advantage for me. I’m strong, I’m in great shape and I’m ready to defeat Robert Stieglitz.”


Sturm was then asked how he sees Saturday night’s fight unfolding. Unsurprisingly, he predicts a win, but is also keen to show his respect for Stieglitz, answering, “I have great respect for Robert Stieglitz. He’s a tremendous fighter. But he has flaws and I intend to expose them. I have lots of surprises for him and I’m sure that I will win on Saturday night.”

Finally, thoughts moved to a potential superfight in 2015 should Sturm come through victorious on Saturday, with the question of, if given the choice, who would be the ideal opponent in Sturm’s view for such a fight...

His cautious yet confident response was, “Right now, I’m only focused on the Stieglitz fight. I can think about the future from Sunday on. There have been some talks of the winner facing Arthur Abraham for the WBO super middleweight title next year, though, and I’d certainly be open to that. Nevertheless, the only thing on my mind is Robert Stieglitz.”


If one lingering fact shines through in this brief interview, it is that Sturm is not only ready for another title fight in early 2015, but he has also clearly invested all of his focus and commitment to overcoming Stieglitz this coming Saturday. With this measure of concentrated intensity from Sturm, and with national bragging rights up for grabs, this fight should not only be a captivating one, but one which should guarantee a title shot for the victor.
