- Updated: May 30, 2014
ESPN3 will televise IBF middleweight title bout between Felix Sturm (39-3-2, 18 KOs) and Sam Soliman (43-11, 18 KOs) this Saturday, live at 2 p.m. ET.
The telecast will include the undercard bouts, with the main event set to go approximately ate 5 p.m. ET.
The fight emanates from the KönigPalast Arena in Krefeld, Germany, and is a rematch between the two. Their first fight ended with a unanimous decision win for Soliman in a world title eliminator, though the fight was ruled a no-contest when Soliman tested positive for a banned substance.
Sturm would then go on to win his next two fights, including a KO of Darren Barker to win the title last December.
