Sturm: 159 lbs

SolimanL 159 lbs.

Prediction: After a few disputed decisions during his five-year run at WBA middleweight champion, Felix Sturm was finally on the wrong side of a split decision when Daniel Geale defeated him last September. On the other hand, Soliman is on a seven fight win streak dating back to 2008 when he dropped a unanimous decision to Anthony Mundine.

Even so, a 34 year-old Sturm still possesses one of the best jabs in the middleweight divison and the counter-punch timing with his right hand that should be enough to temper the whirlwind offense of Soliman, who’s not a spring chicken himself at 39 years old. Sturm has a few worrisome moments, but finishes strong to take this one by a unanimous decision.

Sturm vs. Soliman takes place tomorrow night (February 1) in Düsseldorf, Nordrhein-Westfalen, Germany.
