Boxing’s 1-2 KO Punches

Felix Sturm Defeats Previously Unbeaten Fedor Chudinov

felix-sturm-022116The 37 year old Felix Sturm defeated Fedor Chudinov to become the first German to hold a world title five times.  One judge had it a tie at 114-114 and the other two judges scored the bout 115-113 in favor of Sturm.  Sturm won mainly because he consistently pressured Chudinov all night and Chudinov grew tired as the fight went on.

“Perhaps that was my last bout today. There was huge pressure. I’ll give it a bit of time. We want to come down from this first,” Sturm said. “All in all, it was a nice way to sign off if that was it.” Sturm improved to (40-5-3)(18kos), while Chudinov, who won the first fight by split decision in may dropped to (14-1)(10kos). Since both fights were close and both won by split decisions, expect there to be a rematch later in the year.”Felix fought very well, very hard,” Chudinov said. “There were a few clashes of heads, sometimes Felix’s fault, sometimes mine. But I’m not in agreement with the decision.”WadevsGGG

Dominic Wade not afraid of GGG

GGGWhen MiddleWeight champion Gennady Golovkin admitted that he did not know who Dominic Wade was until a few weeks ago. Wade, was a standout Amatuer and only had a few fights that were televised. Even though he is unknown more people will know who he is April 23rd.

When asked about Gennady Golovkin Wade said “No nerves. I’m cool. I’m ready. I think (Golovkin) can fight. He’s a good fighter, but I think he’s basic as well. (His style is) straight up and down. It’s not a style I haven’t seen before.”

“A lot of fighters when they’re asked if they want to fight Gennady Golovkin (say), ‘We’ll fight him anytime, no problem — except it can’t be Saturdays and it can’t be on HBO,” HBO Sports executive vice president Peter Nelson said. “So, I really want to commend Team Wade for stepping up [to] the challenge for fighting a fight so many have turned down over the years.”

DominicWade“When I first met Dominic Wade, way back when, in Washington, D.C., he had his arm in a sling and he was recovering from something and his trainer at the time said to me, ‘One day he’ll be fighting on HBO’ and here we are. He’s an undefeated challenger fighting for a world title on HBO.”

Gennady Golovkin recognizes that most people make excuses and at the last minute pull out of negotiations.

“I respect Dominic Wade,” Golovkin said. “He’s undefeated mandatory challenger. It’s very serious. I don’t know who will win. I’m not God. This is boxing.”

Wade has a lot of confidence coming into the fight.

“April 23 is going to be a big day for me, a life changing event,” Wade said. “I’m prepared. I’m ready. I’m just coming there to do what I have to do. I’m definitely hungry. I definitely want the titles. When my manager called me and told me about the fight I was excited. I could have run 30 miles right there. It’s gonna be a show. I ain’t scared.”
