Lou DiBella has hit back at ‘paper Champ’ Felix Sturm’s claims that Matthew Macklin is running scared.
Responding to an story posted by www.irish-boxing.com today the Irish Middleweights promoter intimated Sturm was in more need of a rematch than Macklin.
DiBella said Sturm’s fear of leaving Germany, a place renowned for home town decisions, proves he and not the Tipperary Tornado is the coward.
“Sturm is the coward. He stays in Germany were he steals wins. Sturm has had a go at Matthew once again, but he is the one that needs the rematch. He got his ass kicked last time, he is a paper champ and lost.”
