Fedor Chudinov vs. Felix Sturm rematch set for February 20th in Germany

Chudinov defeated Sturm by a split-decision-that-really-shouldn't-have-been-split in May.

There are no brakes on the Felix Sturm train, even if it may have run out of track a little while ago.

The eternal Sturm, who has not won a fight since 2013 and has only won two of his last seven, will reportedly face recent conqueror Fedor Chudinov again on February 20th in Oberhausen, Nordrhein-Westfalen, Germany. He has not fought since losing to Chudinov in May, while the latter has smashed up Frank Buglioni for his first successful WBA title defense.

Sturm (39-5-3, 18 KO) did win the first fight on one scorecard, but to be fair, Sturm and split decisions are longtime bedfellows. Sturm had previously acquitted himself well in a draw with Robert Stieglitz and lost a wide decision to Sam Soliman.

Chudinov (14-0, 10 KO), whose brother Dmitry campaigns down at 160, seems poised to make a bid for elite status in the near-future should he dispatch Sturm again. His current two-decision-streak is the longest of his career and he's still fairly young at 28.

Champions come and go, legends rise and fall, but Sturm...Sturm never changes.
