Three-Time Middleweight Champ Felix Sturm invited the media to his private gym in Cologne, Germany, Wednesday(Jan 16) to showcase his training regime and give journalists an insight into the preparation for his Feb. 1 IBF Middleweight Title Eliminator against Australian Sam Soliman. The fight takes place at the ISS Dome in Dusseldorf.


Speaking today Felix Sturm said: "I’m on the right track to February 1st. I’m already in great shape and I keep getting better and better. Sam Soliman should be in the best possible shape, because I don’t intend to lose again for the rest of my career. And I want to get to the 50 fight landmark before retiring. To achieve that, I have to be more than ready every time I step into the ring – and I’ll make sure that is the case."



Fritz Sdunek, the coach of  Sturm commented: "Felix is doing great. We are having a great camp with great sparring. I thoroughly believe that he will clearly beat Soliman on February onet."


Sturm started the workout with cardio work, before shadowboxing and four rounds on the mitts with his trainer Fritz Sdunek. He concluded the session with strength training and gave interviews to numerous German media outlets afterwards.
