Abraham-Sturm? Brook-Khan?

39-year-old former world champion Arthur Abraham, who last fought in April of 2018, has been linked with a better-late-than-never clash against 41-year-old rival former world champion Felix Sturm. They never fought in their primes.

Sturm said he wants to resume his career after spending eight-and-a-half months in custody while fighting tax-evasion charges in Germany.

Abraham says, “If Felix Sturm wants to box me, I’m always ready to do it.”

Meanwhile, after his win last weekend, super welterweight Kell Brook was asked by Sky Sports about fighting his arch-rival Amir Khan.

“Nothing really to say about him,” said Brook. “Nothing to say. I’m active, I’m ready. I’ve seen him. He’s out of shape, he’s doing his thing. I’m after people that want to fight, who are the real people. The real fighting men, that’s what I want to deal with.”

One thing we know is fights that are years past their due date are lucrative. Mayweather-Pacquaio is the highest-grossing fight of all time.

  • Sturm vs Abraham back in their primes would have been a great one! Both fighters had their moments in their younger careers. The judges gifted Oscar a victory over Sturm, but I thought Sturm won the fight when I scored it on paper. If my memory serves me correctly, Abraham busted Jermaine Taylor in the Showtime tournament of champions which I think resulted in a minor cranial bleed.

  • Most fighters dont have much financial management and forced to take these chances at an advanced age. Im guessing they need the money. Not many guys wanna go through grueling camps and tough fights in late 30’s.

    • NJ, well said. Marcos Maidana struggled with his last comeback and I think he was way too overwhelmed with the physical difficulties to get back in shape. Kinda sad some fighters cant invest money well enough and put themselves back in harm’s way to make a living.

  • “One thing we know is fights that are years past their due date are lucrative. Mayweather-Pacquaio is the highest-grossing fight of all time.”

    This is a strange, and inaccurate statement. Mayweather-Pac may well have been years after people wanted it, but they were still top welters at that point. Not to mention that they are two legends. This isn’t typically the case.
