Arthur Abraham wants to fight Felix Sturm

Arthur Abraham is in the twilight of a prolific, championship-filled career.

Before the Armenian retires, the 34-year-old wants to face off against popular Germany-based fighter Felix Sturm (39-3-2, 18 KOs).

“I want to fight two more times after this one in 2014,” Abraham said. “Before calling it a career, sitting on the couch and watching TV at age 40, I want to meet Felix Sturm at Berlin's Olympic Stadium. That’s what I am dreaming of."

The fight would be big-business boxing in Berlin, and undoubtedly net career paydays for both of Germany's top pugilists. The popular of both fighters in the country is one notch below that of Wladimir Klitschko.

Abraham (40-4, 28 KOs) defended his 168-pound title by outpointing Nikola Sjekloca with a broken hand in May.

Sturm won a middleweight title for the fourth time in December by defeating Darren Barker.
