felix sturm daniel geale  photoBy Jason Kim: WBA super World middleweight champion Felix Sturm (37-2-2, 16 KO’s) has been showing signs of decline in the past year with his close call fights against Matthew Macklin and Martin Murray.

title Robert Guerrero = Safe fight for Khan in December

robert guerrero amir khan  photoBy William Mackay: If Golden Boy Promotions really wants to make sure that Amir Khan (26-3, 18 KO’s) doesn’t lose his next fight, then they should look no further than matching him up against WBC welterweight interim champion Robert Guerrero next.
