Former two-division world boxing champion Felix Sturm takes on Istvan Szili of Hungary in a super middleweight main event on Saturday night, live from Westlfalenhalle in Dortmund, Germany.
The event is promoted by LIB Boxing Promotions and will televised and live streamed in Germany on BILD.
Sturm, 43, is on a comeback trail that began in 2020 after being retired since 2016. He showed in his last two fights since his return to boxing that he still has the conditioning and ability to compete and wants to go for another world title.
In his way is a very rugged and tough Hungarian foe Istvan Szili who has his own dreams of championship gold and is looking at this fight as an opportunity of a lifetime.
Sturm has an ultimate goal of landing a world title shot at 168 pounds and that could mean challenging the great Mexican boxing star Canelo Alvarez who owns all the titles at super middleweight.
If Sturm is able to win another belt in his 40’s he will be part of the company of legendary boxers who won titles in their 40’s such as Bernard Hopkins, George Foreman, Manny Pacquiao to name a few.
