WBA World Super-Middleweight Champion Fedor Chudinov looks set to rematch Felix Sturm after Saturday’s thrilling fight with Frank Buglioni.
‘The Machine’ took a wide points victory to retain his World Title over the ‘Wise Guy’ who showed incredible heart throughout the 12 rounds.
Chudinov, who edged a split decision to collect the vacant title over Sturm back in May, is likely to face the German veteran once more.
"We have started discussions with Sturm's team regarding the rematch which is tentatively scheduled for December 5 in Germany. If Fedor is successful against Felix, then we will look to have another fight in England maybe against George Groves,” revealed promoter Vlad Hrunov.
The charismatic, influential Hrunov was less than hopeful the WBA would enforce a fight with ‘Super’ champion Andre Ward.
Given the short turnaround between this proposed date, Chudinov would need to resume training very shortly. Whether Roy Jones Jr will continue with preparations in the camp remains to be seen.
