More on Sturm vs. Universum

By Wolfgang Schiffbauer

Today, WBA middleweight champion Felix Sturm and his lawyers declared that a bout with mandatory challenger Gennady Golovkin will not happen under any possible circumstances. As a result, Universum withdraw their request for a restraining order against any Sturm-Golovkin fight without Universum’s involvement. According to Sturm’s management and lawyer Sebastian Cording, who successfully got the Klitschko brothers out of a Universum contract, those proceedings are a partial win for Sturm in his legal battle with Universum because Universum withdrew their motion instead of having the court discharge it after Sturm testified. “If you withdraw”, Cording said in a press release, “it is the same as a loss in court. This is a partial victory for Sturm.”

“Their [Universum’s] press release was just a try to make things look good for them”, Sturm said to Fightnews.com over the phone. “However, it was a successful day for us. Now I can start to prepare for my next fight without worrying. I am excited about my upcoming title defense.” No date or an opponent has been set for Sturm’s return to ring as of now.
