Sturm retains against Griffin

Quick blurb:

Felix Sturm jabbed his way to a lopsided decision over American Randy Griffin on Saturday and earned a fourth successful defense of his WBA middleweight title.

The German, whose victory comes 8 1/2 months after the two fought to a draw in October, repeatedly used his left jab from the opening seconds and won 116-113, 116-112 and 118-110.

Griffin was upset with the decision, saying he felt this fight was more a draw than their first encounter. But his own corner was telling him by the eighth rounded that he needed a knockout, so Griffin might not be, erm, right.

Sturm is now 30-2-1 (13), while Griffin falls to 24-2-3 (12).
