Castillejo stops Sturm in 10th for WBA middleweight title

HAMBURG, Germany (Ticker) - The older, the better.

Spanish veteran Javier Castillejo tore the WBA middleweight belt away
from Germany's Felix Sturm with a spectacular 10th-round technical
knockout Saturday night.


Sturm (25-2) looked well in control after recovering from a
second-round knockdown, but only until his 38-year-old opponent badly
caught him with a rocking left hook late in the 10th that left Sturm
dazed on the ropes.

Castillejo (61-6, 41 KOs) followed with three equally hard left
uppercuts to the head. The referee kept Sturm from sinking to his
knees as the bout was halted with 13 seconds left in the frame.

&quot;I did a good job,&quot; said Castillejo, who twice held the WBC junior
middleweight title at the turn of the century. &quot;I started slowly and
got better towards the end. I tried to make him exhausted and as you
can see, I succeeded.&quot;

&quot;Something like this can always happen in boxing,&quot; a frustrated Sturm
said before being taken to a hospital with what appeared to be a
broken jaw. &quot;I have to accept it. This is boxing. I wanted to show the
crowd that I can fight.&quot;

Sturm carried a smile on his face as he entered the ring for his first
title defense. His confidence was evident 80 seconds into the bout
when he wobbled Castillejo with a strong left hook.

However, &quot;El Lince&quot; turned the tide in the second round when he caught
the champion napping. He rocked Sturm with a big left hook and again
with a vicious left uppercut that sent Sturm to the canvas.

Backed by the frenetic support of 5,000 in attendance, the champion
scrambled back to his feet to survive the round. Sturm rediscovered
his strong right in the following frame, with Castillejo launching
occasional explosive assaults.

&quot;I knew he had a good guard and wanted to hit his head,&quot; Castillejo
said. &quot;The first knockdown gave me a boost to enter the next rounds
even more offensively.&quot;

In the fifth, Sturm landed a punishing left to the head and followed
later with a right and another strong left hook that left Castillejo
impressed.

The champion lost his footing in the sixth but no knockdown was ruled,
even though Castillejo appeared to land a left to the head.

Sturm seized control earl in the ninth when he cleverly outboxed his
opponent with deliberate combinations. Castillejo started strongly in
the 10th and tired Sturm with a flurry of well-placed shots to body
and head.

Despite his status as an unwelcome visitor here, Castillejo had no
problem battling Sturm on his home turf.

&quot;A lot depends on the German promoters, but I would love to fight in
Germany again,&quot; the new champion said.

Sturm was making his first defense of the title he won here with a
12-round decision over Maselino Masoe.

On the undercard, Ukrainian Wladimir Sidorenko (19-0, 6 KOs) retained
his WBA bantamweight crown by claiming a unanimous decision over
Thailand's Poonsawat Kratingdaenggym (24-1, 15 KOs).

In a spectacular fast-paced battle, the challenger badly bloodied his
opponent's face but still found himself on the wrong end of scorecards
of 120-108, 116-112 and 115-113.

You know, there is something about this Castillejo fighter. He is not
great but he has been vastly underrated.
I mean, he came close to finishing Vargas, he beat the once highly
regarded Roman Karmazin and now he tkos (
Sturm) the fighter that gave DLH all he could handle?

Castillejo has been called a title-holder years back but the fact is
that at 154, he was always been a tough fighter and a legit champ. And
now he is the WBA middleweight champ at 38!!!

Well, Javier did show Sturm and the audience what separate the boys from the
men.
To do a good fight against a &quot;fat and resting&quot; ODLH is not the same as meet
him as Mayorga did.
Sturm can't live on that forever.
Now this old and almost retired Javier Castillejo was able to show Sturm
what it takes to be a true Champion.
Sturm is a good fighter, he stand up for almost 10 rounds. But his chin and
punshingpower belongs not in this level.

It's easy to get a title if you are in The Universum stall, they can fix a
lot but a KO is not defenseible. You are out!
I think we soon will hear from Rocky Rocchigiani the former German world
champion what makes you a Champ.
He was great, no help from the Universum.

Well, the Sturm-saga was short. But I think he can be a name here in Europe
if he improves his punshing-power a bit.
And protect his glass-chin better.
I know Felix you will try to come back.

I understand Sturm got his jaw broken in the 2nd round. He still lasted
till the 10th round and lost because he foolishly decided to trade with
Castillejo (apparently he was booed in his last outing, when he ran the
last few rounds). Fighting with a broken jaw for almost eight rounds
doesn't sound like something a guy with a glass chin would do.

No jaw injury at all according to today's German papers.
