Sturm wins in comeback fight

41-year-old former middleweight and super middleweight world champion Felix Sturm returned to action for the first time in nearly five years on Saturday night at the Universum Gym in Hamburg, Germany. Sturm (41-5-2, 18 KOs) scored a one-sided ten round unanimous decision over previously unbeaten Timo Rost (10-1-2, 3 KOs). Sturm methodically outboxed Rost all the way. Scores were 100-90, 99-91, 100-93.

Heavyweight Jose Larduet (5-0, 4 KOs) knocked out Marcos Antonio Aumada (21-10, 16 KOs) in the first round. Time was 3:00.

Unbeaten super welterweight Bujar Tahiri (7-0, 6 KOs) won by second round stoppage over 44-year-old veteran Giuseppe Lauri (56-22, 34 KOs). A barrage of punches prompted a referee’s stoppage. Time was 2:07.

Heavyweight Lenroy Thomas (24-5-1, 12 KOs) knocked out Fernando Rodrigo Simoes de Almeida (9-4, 9 KOs) in round two. Thomas dropped Almeida twice in round one and two more times in round two. Time was 1:03.

  • Time for Sturm – Abraham! Only about a decade too late, but who cares! Gamboa – Juanma can be the co-main.

    • Sturm & Abraham already met with press to talk about that fight. Even when its 10 years too late it would be some bigger event over here so i`m pretty sure they ll do it.

      • Maybe get Hagler and Hearns to rematch on the undercard, even better, see if Ken Buchannan can get his long awaited rematch with Duran.
        Never let dimentia get in the way of making a buck/entertaining a blood thirsty crowd

  • I thought Sturm was going to be in jail, so surprised about this match. Sturm in one of those boxers whose greatest achievement in a match was one he lost, and that was to Oscar Da Lahoya in Las Vegas. With Vegas judges, or at least American. And then we here in American complain about judging in Germany in the past.
    As far as fights go, someone even suggested having Canelo Alvarez to an exhibition with Mike Tyson.
