Halle, the city located in East Westphalia, will be in the focus on 20th October for another boxing highlight of 2007. The GERRY WEBER STADION will be the venue for the „Universum Champions Night“ and the title defence of Universum middleweight Felix Sturm (28-2-0 (12))..
Felix Sturm is a busy man when it comes to boxing in the last months. He dethroned the Spaniard Javier Castillejo in a Rematch in April 2007 and secured the WBA belt for the second time before risking it again just eight weeks after in Stuttgart against the unbeaten Noe Tulio Gonzalez Alcoba of Uruguay. He is back again and will jeopardize his belt now against his mandatory challenger and no. 1 rated in the WBA rankings, Randy Griffin (24-1-2 (12)), who is promoted by Don King.
„I wanted to fight very soon after the bout against Castillejo. I’m now crazy about boxing and I want to use the great motivation I have and win more fights", says Sturm about his tough boxing schedule.
Universum-Promoter Klaus-Peter Kohl: „It will be our first event in the Gerry Weber Stadion and we are looking forward to have Felix as our headliner in this event. We hope that the crowd will enjoy the night, with a great atmosphere and great fights!“
