‘Super’ WBA World Super-Middleweight Champion Fedor Chudinov is expecting a tougher test than before when he rematches Felix Sturm this Saturday night on BoxNation.

“I think this fight will be much harder than last time. Felix will be in much better shape,” revealed Chudinov.

‘The Machine’ defeated Frank Buglioni comfortably on points last time out in September after picking up a split decision win over Sturm back in May last year to win his first World Title.

The 28 year old has 9 years of youth on his side come Saturday night, but is playing down that age could be a factor and has now caught up with the challenger.

“He won’t make the mistakes he done before, he knows I’m much better. Before, no one knew me – now I’m well known.”

Sturm bids to become a five time World Champion this weekend on home turf at the Koenig Pilsener Arena in Oberhausen.

“I’m ready, emotionally and physically. I’m waiting for a stronger Felix Sturm than last time.”
