Former three-time middleweight champion Felix Sturm has commented on tonight’s IBF middleweight title fight between champion Daniel Geale and Darren Barker. Sturm will face the winner of the bout.

“I believe Daniel Geale will win this by decision,” Sturm told “Barker is strong fighter, as he has showed against Martinez, but Geale will edge him. I might be a close one but Geale is, in my opinion, the better fighter. He is active, varies his punches, doesn’t let you breath. But Barker should not be overlooked, he definitely has a shot. But no matter who wins, I’ll be ready to challenge him for the IBF title. However, I’m eager to get a rematch with Geale and I’ll be rooting for him next Saturday.”
