Sturm vs Soliman: Weigh-in photos and results from Germany

Felix Sturm and Sam Soliman made weight for their IBF middleweight eliminator today, with the fight taking place tomorrow in Germany.

Scott Christ is the managing editor of Bad Left Hook and has been covering boxing for SB Nation since 2006.

Felix Sturm and Sam Soliman are good to go for tomorrow's IBF middleweight eliminator tomorrow in Düsseldorf, in a fight televised by SAT1 in Germany, and also by BoxNation in the United Kingdom.

Both Sturm (37-3-2, 16 KO) and Soliman (42-11, 17 KO) weighed in at 159.84 pounds, to be precise. The 34-year-old Sturm is coming off of a loss to Daniel Geale, while Soliman, 39, has won seven straight fights dating back to 2008, including a win last August over Giovanni Lorenzo.

The winner is fighting for the right to face Geale, which is a money fight of sorts either way for the reigning titlist. A Geale-Sturm rematch would have an audience in Germany or Australia, while Geale-Soliman is a solid domestic fight in Australia.

Bad Left Hook will have live round-by-round coverage tomorrow for the show. Here's the undercard lineup:
