Sturm, Universum part ways

WBA middleweight champion Felix Sturm has bought out his contract with Universum Box-Promotion. “I’m now a free man,” declared Sturm after a Hamburg court ruled Sturm could pay $1.2 million (950,000 euros) and go his separate way. Sturm is expected to return to the ring on September 4 at the Lanxess Arena (formerly known as Kölnarena) in Cologne, Germany against an opponent to be named.

    For 18 years, Fightnews.com® has delivered daily boxing news to fight fans around the globe. From the beginning, we have always kept Fightnews free to our readers and relied on advertiser support. Anyway, the Miami Herald, The Guardian, and Wikipedia among others have been using the “crowdfunding” revenue model, so we thought we’d test it too.

    Please consider helping out. You’re not obligated to, but even a $1 pledge would really help. And if we reach our goal, we plan to upgrade our server and maybe even nuke the ads altogether. Wouldn’t that be nice?
